I wore a shoe and I could feel it rubbing against my toe and now for two weeks it is sore. I have bought over the counter medicines for the corn but it is not working.

I have a large hard lump on the ball of my foot and the corn is causing me difficulty walking.

I have corn and callus due to a hereditary problem.
