I applied one pad just as I had the cotton balls, and I covered it with athletic tape to keep it in place. Instructions on these pads say to leave them in place for 48 hours. The athletic tape held very well for this period of time, and the pads reduced my pain a great deal. I think the salicylic acid (aspirin) helped with the pain, too. I later found some larger callus pads that work the same way. They are fairly comfortable, but the corn pads are really a better size for me.
