I'm going to see a podiatrist today about removing a corn I have on the pad of my foot near the toes. It is about the most painful thing I have delt with. I have tried every over the counter remedy there is. I have had it since November and I am a server at a very busy restaurant. I am in great pain everyday. 

My question is should I soak the foot today to get the corn soft? And does anyone know how long this type of corn removal will take to heal..or how long recover time is? I am in a position where I can't miss much work.
