You know when you have hard skin under your big toe, and it hurts to walk on, I have that.

I've tried grating it off with one of those grater things, rubbing baby oil hasn't worked either.

it's driving me nuts, am I doing something wrong?

put the foot in water for a long time, it wont be so hard then and you might be able to do something with the grater

For goodness sake go to a chiropodist/podiatrist. It'll cost around 30 quid but you'll feel like you're walking on air afterwards.

Corn or veruccha (sp?).

There are acid based liquids you can use that'll burn it away in about ten days.

I have it but on the side of my big toe, the outside. I keep cutting it off but comes back and more painful.

There's no chance I will be able to cut mine off.

it hurts just to touch it, let alone cutting it

When in the house don't wear shoes, The additional air getting to the soles of your feet and reduced temperature of the foot will start to work on the problem. it might take a while but should help and enable you to start touching the soles too.

You might when able want to do a little emery board work on the hard skin area too.

Cheers.

I do wear slippers and trainers indoors quite a bit, which is silly really.

Sounds like a corn. They're really painful if you put pressure on it, and they go in quite deep, you really need to get it done by a chiropodist. When it's cut out professionally it doesn't hurt.

But wont it really hurt if a chiropodist does it? I mean it must do a bit, surely

It sounds like a callus or corn - try putting some bazuka (salicylic acid?) on it - the stuff that's used for veruccas, then file it down, and use a corn plaster. A chiropodist will probably do the same thing - they won't cut it out (i.e., draw blood) or do anything painful.
