A corn on your toe is due to a bony deformity that causes friction and skin buildup. Medicated corn pads contain an acid, and when placed on the hardened skin on your toe, or a corn, this can actually damage the skin. It doesn't really get rid of the corn, as the underlying cause is actually a bony deformity such as a bone spur or a hammer toe. Beware when using these medicated corn pads, because the acid damaging the skin can cause an infection. Especially if you hae diabetes, definitely do not use them! If you have a corn and would like remedies and treatments, it is best to make an appointment with your doctor.
