Corns - skin or bone?

I have what looks like a corn but it is as hard as bone and when I use one of the corn removers it only makes it smaller but the main shape and hardness stays. What can I do about it?

#1.... DONT use corn removers, they damage the skin! The corn is from a bone problem, the only way to remove a corn is to have the bone cut and the toe straightened. Unless you are talking of "soft" corns.
