Since you lot are good with weird stuff...Any help with getting rid of a corn?

I've had it about 15yrs! Seriously!

Nothing works! Corn plasters -nope. Doc told me to file it and use salyactic (?) acid on it nightly. Tried that for 6 months - nope.

Anything else?

Forget the doc - put your hand in your pocket and go and see a podiatrist.

Alternatively, if it's accessible, you could attack it with nail clippers and then pick the centre out.

That's not generally recommended, but it's very satisfying and, in my case, effective.

Show it to someone??? shock it's really disgusting though.

Boots own corn plasters are very good imo, then when it's soft attack it with the nail clippers.

Corn and callus knife from boots. Very satisfying. But if you've had it 15 years a professional might be called for!

What will they go and how much can I expect to pay?

Dip your toe in the sap of the Boojum tree on a night with a full moon.

Here in the West Midlands I pay £35 a session. I'm having an involuted toenail retrained at the moment.

Doesn't duck tape work on corns or verrucas?
