Asha from Goa asks:
My feet hurt a lot if I walk a little more. There is a corn on my left foot. I have tried many ointments for it but there has been no relief.
Corns are caused by friction and pressure. Avoid tight and hard footwear. Ill-fitting shoes are the main culprit in the cases of aching feet and corns. Read more about it in this post.
Try using papaya milk (the white liquid oozing out of the papaya fruit stem) or some of these home-remedies, from here and here or you might try a medicated corn plaster for the corn. But if it still persists, don’t treat it further yourself. You will probably make it worse. Consult a podiatrist to get it removed painlessly.
Once you have been treated for the corn, be sure to throw away those old shoes, sandals, flip-flops, etc, which have been the cause of the problem.
For beautiful healthy feet, free from aches and pains, pamper it with foot-baths, have a bi-monthly pedicure done at home or at a beauty salon. Also to exfoliate your soles and to keep them free from corns & calluses, practice bare-foot sand-walking on the beach. (This shouldn’t be a problem for you as you already live in a place that has lovely beaches.)
