Corn, (F.) Cor, Ognon, from cornu,a horn. A small, hard, corneous tumour, which forms upon the foot, generally on the toes; and is commonly produced on the most projecting parts, by the pressure of too tight shoes. A part of the corn is raised above the skin, and forms a round tumour, like the head of a nail: the other portion, which serves as its base, is buried more or less deeply in the integuments, and occasionally extends as far as the tendons and periosteum. Corns may, sometimes, be removed, by immersing the feet in warm water, but commonly they return. They can, likewise, be destroyed by the knife or caustic, or by paring them down and pulling them out by the roots; but these operations are not always as simple as they seem. In the way of palliation, they must be constantly pared; and, for the purpose of preventing pressure, any soft plaster, spread upon lines or leather, may be applied, with a hole in the centre to receive the corn; and layer after layer of plaster be added, until they attain the level of the corn. When very irritable, the lunar caustic, rubbed over the surface, will generally diminish irritability surprisingly, and in a mode not easy of explanation. Corn, Zea mays.
