Try this; soak a slice of bread in about a quarter-cup of vinegar (it can be white vinegar, or apple cider vinegar), and then crunch up the bread in your hands to form a paste. This is also known as a poultice. Pat that up close around your corn, and put bandages over it to hold it in place over night. If the corn doesn't just peel away when you unpack your foot in the morning, then, just try again for another night or two. Depending on the size of the corn, it should soon come away and give you relief.
