Q
Can you soak and file away a corn or does it require surgery?

A

If you do soak and file a corn or callused area it does help to remove the extra skin growing on it.  This helps relieve some of the pressure.  Yet since all people are unique with different situations; some people require additional padding, change of shoes and possibly surgery.  This is because the root cause of most calluses is pressure on prominent areas.
