Top 5 Homeopathic Medicines for Corns

Corns are thick, hard, rough, dead areas on the skin caused by excessive friction or pressure. Most common sites for corns are feet, toes, hands, and fingers. The major cause of corn formation is excessive friction, rubbing or pressure on the skin. Corns are actually formed out of a protective response to save the skin from the effects of excessive pressure and friction. Wearing shoes that are too tight or too loose; long, continued standing schedule, excessive sweat on the feet and long, continued use of tools or musical instruments are the major factors that predispose a person to corn formation. Corns appear as thick, rough, raised areas on the skin. Corns can either be hard or soft. Hard corns appear majorly on top of the toes or on the sides of feet while soft corns form in between the toes. They cause pain when walking or standing.  homeopathic medicines for corns

Homeopathic Medicines for Corns

Corns can be successfully treated under the Homeopathic mode of treatment that uses a very gentle approach. These remedies for corns are very effective and attack the problem at the root. Surgical removal of corns is temporary and corns tend to recur afterward. Removing the corns with surgery also carries the risk of infection, while natural medicines provide a permanent and completely safe solution to corns. I have treated a large number of corn cases in my clinical practice. The medicines for corns that I have found to be most beneficial are Antimonium Crudum, Hepar Sulph, Silicea, Nitric Acid, Lycopodium and Ranunculus Bulbosus.

1. Antimonium Crudum – Top-rated Remedy for Corns

Antimonium Crudum tops the list of natural medicines for corns. In my clinical practice, I have seen Antimonium Crudum yield remarkable results in patients with corns. This medicine is, therefore, my first choice for prescription in complaints of corns. As usual, the diagnosis and treatment plan involves an in-depth analysis of the case. The most prominent symptom indicating that Antimonium Crudum is used is the presence of large, horny corns on feet which may or may not be inflamed. Antimonium Crudum is also one of the best medicines for corns where the corns are very tender. Pain is felt in the corns while walking.

2. Silicea – For Soft Corns

Silicea is another of the top grade medicines for corns. I have seen excellent results in patients with soft corns with the use of Silicea, which is natural and therefore, safe. Soft corns mainly appear between the toes. Silicea is one of the most effective. The characteristic symptoms – corns between the toes may be sore and painful. Patients may also feel burning or tearing pain in these corns. Silicea also works wonders in cases of corns between toes that tend to suppurate (discharge pus). Excessive sweat with an offensive odour may be present on the foot where the corn is located.

3. Hepar Sulph – For Corns with Pus Formation

Hepar Sulph is one of the best choices of medicines for corns that tend to suppurate (have pus formation). I have seen many corn cases with pus formation heal magnificently well with the use of Hepar Sulph. The kind of corns for which Hepar Sulph would be the most suitable prescription are corns infected with pus formation and pricking pains. Burning, stinging pains may also be experienced in cases where Hepar Sulph would be one of the ideal medicines for corns. Such corns may also be highly sensitive to touch.

4. Nitric Acid & Lycopodium – For Painful Corns

Natural medicines Nitric Acid and Lycopodium are rated among the best medicines for corns that are very painful. The guiding feature for prescribing Nitric Acid as the most suitable among medicines for corns is the presence of corns with splinter-like or sticking pains. In cases where the most prominent symptoms are thick, indurated (hardened) corns on the feet with pressing, tearing, aching and drawing pains, Lycopodium would show best results. Lycopodium is also one of the best medicines for corns which are inflamed and result in sore, stinging, burning pains.

5. Ranunculus Bulbosus & Antimonium Crudum – For Horny Corns

Ranunculus Bulbosus and Antimonium Crudum are noted medicines for horny corns. Ranunculus Bulbosus works well in hard, horny corns. The corns in this case are very sensitive to touch. Antimonium Crudum helps to effectively heal large horny corns over the feet. The corns are very tender and painful, especially while walking, in such cases where Antimonium Crudum has proved itself as one of the best medicines for corns.

    Dear Doctor,
    I am 80 years old. I used to walk a great deal and once a year for 5 days used to walk 5 km as my morning walk up and down mountain areas. My shoes were a little loose I think. I developed callous on the sides os my toes, which are better with new better shoes and U lac cream and Moisturisers.
    Six weeks ago I looked u der my big toes and found terrible blister like corns with infection. The skin specialist said it was chill lain. Ytental tabletswere prescribed for blood circulation and to avoid clots, with fusidic avid creams. After the crust came off 3 weeks ago, there was terrible pain in the sore and surrounding area. I was given 15 days of antibiotics and cream. It is 75 %. Eternal, but some pain is still there with a central core. The doctor said it is a corn. And told me to wear rocker bottom shoes with turned up front part to relieve pressure on the toes plus U lac cream and. moisturiser.

    It this will not remove the corn as such.l advise what medicine I should take,
    If possible, I would like to send you a picture of it’s original condition 6 weeks ago, but much better now.
