Corns can be surgically removed if other treatment methods fail, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Other treatment methods include shaving the top of the corn off or removing it with a pumice stone.
Most corns will eventually disappear when the pressure placed on the area is halted as stated by WebMD. A person can also use padding on the area where the corn occurs to help relieve the pressure which results in the corn. Sometimes, even when a corn is surgically removed, it can come back. If the corn becomes infected, it can be treated with oral antibiotics. Only a doctor should perform the surgery.
