The simple answer is that you would probably experience pain. Many patients come in complaining of pain between the toes. They may not see anything, but they know it hurts. A hard layer of skin or corn may have developed. The underlying problem is that a bone spur is present, leading to pressure on the skin. All corns come from a bone spur or other bone problem. This is why removing a corn is only a temporary fix. The permanent solution is to have the bone spur removed, also known as an ostectomy.
