scarring after using corn removers


I am a hopeless sandal wearer that works out regularly.
I began to notice pain and reddening in one spot of both little toes…so I rushed out and got corn removers.
i followed the directions and took them off 48hrs later (last night) and now it seems that I have areas of white smooth skin where the pads had once been.
I am an african american female and I am wondering if this will go away on its own or will I need to treat the area again to regain the color?
Whats happening to my piggies?

  1. It is impossible to tell how much damage is done. You are best to treat these areas with a great deal of kindness. Keep them covered with a mild topical antibiotic and bandaids. The acid in the corn removers burns the skin. P.S. I NEVER recommend these to anyone
