Our Aching Feet
We humans have been dealing with aching feet for thousands of years. We walk, run, stand for long periods of time and put added pressure on our feet by trying to squeeze them into fabulous shoes.
As far back as 400 BC, the Greek physician, Hippocrates, was using special skin scrapers to remove corns from his patient’s feet, because CornStick® was not available back then.
Why Corns Hurt
Corns are small, but the pain they cause can be very distressing.
Corns start out to protect the skin of your feet from pressure or friction. Layers of skin build up in response to the friction… often from shoes that don’t fit properly… to protect you from more friction.
Because a corns often form where there is a hard bone beneath it, it can cause pain when pressed against the bone.
CornStick® works by breaking down the top layers of skin that form the corn, which reduces the pressure on the corn and diminishes the pain.
What to look for in a Corn Remover
CornStick® has everything you should look for in a corn remover. It is:
- Easy to use
How CornStick® Works
The ingredient that makes CornStick® so effective is salicylic acid. Other over-the-counter corn removal products may contain salicylic acid, but CornStick® has the maximum strength.
The salicylic acid in CornStick® begins to work as soon as you put it on the corn.
Because it’s in a solid form, CornStick® can be placed exactly where you need it. You just put it on the corn, cover it with a soft bandage and let it begin to work.
As the layers of the corn are broken down, the healing begins and the pain decreases. Please be sure to read all directions and drug facts on the box.
CornStick® is available on-line and at CVS and Rite-Aid stores across the country.
