When to go for surgery? What would be the complication if not operated?

It may be possible to remove the corn through self care at home. However, according to the doctors, medical treatments assure much relief from the hazards of corn when various forms of self-care measures are found to be a failure. Trimming the damaged skin, prescribed medications, use of customized shoe pads are some of the suggestions that the doctors usually advise. Surgery is the last and very rare option at the hands of the doctor if the cause of corn development is due to any kind of friction by the wrong alignment of bones or abnormal bone structures.
