Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.
Consider seeing a foot doctor rather than trying to treat (burn) the corn yourself if it's been there a long time. Especially in light of the other issues you have going on. Have you seen a doctor about your knee pain? If not, an x-ray or scan may be needed to make a proper diagnosis.
In the meantime, you can soak your feet in warm water and use a pumice stone or callus file to reduce the corn. Gently move the stone in a circle or side-to-side motion to remove dead skin. You can do this in the shower too.
Moisturize your feet every day. Look for a deep moisturizing lotion or cream that will help soften corns (and calluses).
Cut a piece or two of moleskin and fit it around the corn to protect against further irritation and friction.
If you have painful corns, sandals or open toe shoes can be more comfortable, generally.
