Out toed gait: The most obvious term is out toed gait. Otherwise the answer depends on what is causing the condition. The problem could be in the hips, knees, ankles or feet. Each problem would have a different name. For example, flat foot deformity can cause out toed gait.

External rotation: Ext rotation deformity. Can be coming from the knees, hips, or the feet themselves. Can be from flat feet to external tibial torsion to femoral retroversion.

What type of fibromatosis grows on top of the foot?

Possible desmoid?: Most fibromatoses of the foot occurs on the bottom (plantar) surface. There is a type of benign tumor that is very invasive called a desmoid fibromatosis or desmoid tumor. I would be concerned that a lump on the top (dorsal) surface of the foot could be this, which is aggressive. A ganglion cyst is another possibility. See a doctor for possible imaging and biopsy.

Lesions: Brown discoloration on the skin can be a multiple of problems, best to have evaluated by either a podiatrist or dermatologist. If you are a diabetic, these are associated with use of metformin "leaking" iron in your bloodstream and skin. Otherwise, the possibility of melanoma exists.

How long do you need to stay off of a toe that has a spur but isnt broken?

Depends on a lot: Rest will not make a spur go away. Allevating the pressure on the toe which caused the spur to form is the key. If the area is inflammed and sore, rest may be helpful for a while. If the cause is not addressed, then the problem will return in a short time. The problem could be shoe pressure or pressure from another toe or another deformity.

Wake them up: If this happens often, this means you have neuropathy and should be evaluated by a doctor. If it happens after sitting in a certain position it is occurring as a result of pressure neuropathy and you should not sit in that position or not for a long time.
