I tried the castor oil on a piece of cotton ball used it for two days now I promise it works was so amazed as I have bought many different expensive treatments over the years and I paid R20 for castor oil and it's a miracle in a bottle. I read a ladies review on earth clinic the best advice ever so now I can take out all my sandals and flip flops for summer.
I had a corn on my foot for over 3 months. I literally tried everything!! Banana peels, vinegar, aspirin paste, stick on medicated pads, compound w and many more. The ONLY thing that got rid of this monster was castor oil.
Here's how I did it and I hope this helps other people because I really understand the pain you go through now and I feel so fortunate that I found mention of this on a website somewhere and gave it a try.
I took a cotton ball tore in less then half apart, made a circle out of it with the center open so the corn could come through the hole.
Pour a small about of castor oil on the cotton, but first place the cotton circle on tape that will stick to the bottom of your foot. I used medical tape that's like cloth from the drugstore. Tape it to the bottom of your foot and wear all day and one on all night. Normally in the morning I would take it off, file the corn with an emery board (black one from Sally's) and put the castor oil patch right back on.
With in 3 days, it was almost gone. I was so happy! Here's a picture of the castor oil I bought and how my cotton donut shaped patch looks. Good luck!!
