Get rid of those corns and calluses

Pretty feet can be ruined with unsightly corns which are often caused by ill-fitting shoes which may be too tight and rub against the foot.
Corns are quite irritating but believe it or not, the body develops them in order to protect certain parts of the foot. Corns affect both men and women and generally occur on the tops and sides of the toes but there are also seed corns which develop on the soles of the feet.
Now that we know more about corns, what can we do about it? Well, we found an ointment and plaster that can help remove it.

Kroko Corn and Callus Remover is an effective medicated ointment which treats and helps gets rid of corns quickly and painlessly.. This ointment should be used together with Kroko Corn Protectors plaster which will reduce painful pressure on the corns whilst they are being eradicated.

To treat corns, the foot should be soaked in hot water for at least five minutes then towelled dry. Gently rub the corn with an emery board or pumice stone to remove any surface layer of hardened skin. Apply a thin layer of Kroko Corn and Callus Remover ointment to the corn, taking care to avoid the surrounding skin, and leave it to dry for a minute or two. Then cover the corn with a Kroko Corn Protector plaster which will prevent the ointment from rubbing off. Repeat the process and change the corn protector dressing once a day for six days.

Another method to remove corns or calluses is by using a medicated Kroko Corn Plaster. These plasters are a combination of both the Kroko ointment and Kroko corn protector plaster and with ongoing use, will soften and remove corns.
