Keywords:Agni karma, foot care, plantar corn, shastra karma
A Corn is a specially-shaped callus of dead skin that occurs on the thin or glabrous surface of the toe. It presses upon the adjacent tissues and causes severe pain when pressed due to pressure on the nerves. Plantar corns are recalcitrant to the medical line of treatment and being very painful need surgical intervention. Surgery is rarely indicated since the rate of recurrences is as high as with conservative therapy The management of Kadara is aimed at the removal of the hyperkeratosis lesion by Snigdha Agni Karma along with Shastra Karma. Here, we demonstrated an OPD base simple and effective ancient technique in corns as described in Samhita which found to be very beneficial.
