Are salicylic acid plasters more effective than scalpel debridement for corns?

The effectiveness of salicylic acid plasters compared with ‘usual’ scalpel debridement of corns: a randomised controlled trial Lisa J Farndon, Wesley Vernon, Stephen J Walters, Simon Dixon, Mike Bradburn, Michael Concannon and Julia Potter Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2013, 6:40 doi:10.1186/1757-1146-6-40 Quote: Background Corns are a common foot problem and surveys have indicated that between 14-48% of people suffer from them. Many of these will seek podiatry treatment, however there is little evidence to indicate which current treatments provide long term resolution. This study compared ‘usual’ treatment (enucleation with a scalpel) with the application of 40% salicylic acid plasters to corns to investigate which is the most effective in terms of clinical, economic and patient-centred outcomes.
