I never knew that a corn could be so annoying. That was until I had one, for the very first time.
No no, not this delicious corn. It’s actually the corn that grows on the foot caused by constant friction (still don’t understand the science behind it). Basically, a foot corn.
So yeah, it grew on the sole of my feet. Started off as an innocent little bump, which later on turned into an irritating damn-why-u-grew-there thing.
I had it for about 3 months, endured the pain caused by the pressure whenever I walk.
I used corn plasters for almost a week, it’s still there. I applied corn-rid solution for about 2 weeks, damn it’s still there – my skin was pretty damaged though.
That was when I told myself – enough! Imma gonna get ride of it MYSELF!
Yeap. My. Self. Project “Foot corn removal” initiated.
Actually I was advised to visit a doctor to get it surgically removed. Apparently the corn will always be there if you don’t remove the “root”.
Ahh… the root… needs to be surgically removed… so – I got a tweezer, washed it clean and took the plunge! I started fiddling and pulling the “infested” flesh off.
RAWR!!!! DAMN YOU CORN!
It was frigging painful every single time when I attempt to pull out the corn flesh. It was quite deep.
I went on, very determined and motivated. I insisted that I will get rid of this nuisance – once and for all.
Oh yeah, if you are wondering how does the “corn flesh” looks like…
Yeap, that’s just a single piece – there are actually more of it. Imagine I had to gather my strength and guts just to extract such a tiny flesh from my feet – multiple times!
The pain was immense, the blood kept on flowing.
My tissue even turned into a red polka dot tissue. Lady Gaga would certainly love to use it on her future outfit.
Anyway, I persisted my mini “operation” and it took about 1 hour plus just to deal with it. And the outcome…
I’m awesome. Pretty much the whole chunk of corn flesh has been removed (pulled off), and probably the root as well – since umm… there was a crater. What a bloody mess.
A day later, it looked like this…
So black ah, and I thought to myself – was it successful?
About a week later, it looked like this…
Well, I thought the corn has returned from the dead! Just look at the skin texture, so similar to a corn. All my effort seemed wasted at that moment.
But about 2 weeks since the operation…
It has started to disappear! The skin was turning back to normal and there was no longer any pain when I pressed on it. Great!
And right now…
I’m awesome! I have successfully gotten rid of the corn with my bare hands! Awesome or what? With my bare hands, ya know? Don’t play play!
Know what, thinking back on my amazing feat – I think I can be a professional surgeon one fine day.
I’m gonna be an awesome surgeon and make lots of money! :D
