Silver polish should take away the tarnish. However, unless it was heavily plated to begin with, the silver may also come off with a lot of rubbing. Silver itself doesn't usually corrode - in fact it is corrosion resistant - but the base metal under silverplate may if the thin layer of plating has worn off.
