Doctor insights on:
Big Toe Turning Outward
Sharp sudden pain in big toe only lasts a few seconds then goes away happens periodically throughout the day?
HAV: From this minimalist description, possibly a bunion.
Circulation: Without a prior history of trauma to case bruising, my first thought would be poor circulation. As tissues receive less oxygenated blood, they turn blue and dusky. This needs to be checked promptly. See a podiatrist for an examination. If findings warrant, they will order circulation testing and possibly even refer you to a vascular surgeon.See 3 more doctor answers
Surgery: Is the likely solution. Structural deformities usually are fixed by surgery.See 2 more doctor answers
The bottom of my second in toenail (from the big toe in) is turning black, been this way a few weeks now, what is this?
2mo postop cheilectomy, pain in sesamoid area increasing last few wks & big toe turning in & over other toe dr says its normal & that's it is it normal
A clean up procedure: Cheilectomies are "Clean-up" procedures to help relieve some of the signs and symptoms of an arthritic joint, while still preserving the joint. Not quite sure why the toe is out of alignment. The alternative to a cheilectomy is an implant. These are much improved over the past few years and are quite similar to a knee or hip titanium appliance.
What is the best way to treat a callus turning white on the side of the big toe that developed from running?
Can you have a bunion on the top of big toe. Left big toe is turning inward & I can't bend it down as far as right toe.
Yes: A bump on the top of the big toe joint develops with jamming of that joint and formation of spurring. This can be caused by trauma or elevation of the metatarsal bone. Early treatment consists of steroid injections and custom inserts to improve joint function. As it advances, surgery may be needed to restore joint function, insert a joint implant or even fuse the joint to stop painful motion.See 2 more doctor answers
Went on holiday to srilanka bitten by ant or mosquito and have a big wound that's turning black round the edges near my left big toe and pus coming out?
Infected: It could be infected if there is pus coming out of it. The black edges are concerning and suggest necrotic tissue. You could have been bitten by a spider. You should see a doctor and have it cultured and treated
Sounds like trauma: And blood under nail. If you don't remember trauma then see dermatologist for diagnosis and treatmentSee 1 more doctor answer
My big toe is turning in towards the 2nd toe but there is no bump on the side or pain. Is this a bunion?
Hallux valgus: The term for the big toe leaning toward the second is hallux valgus. While this is often accompanied by a boney prominence on the inner aspect of the joint (bunion), it isn't mandatory. Early treatment can include splinting of the toe or orthotics. If pain arises, surgery is often recommended.See 2 more doctor answers

My knees have started turning red and itchy and the tops of my feet in a red like from big toe to ankle- symmetrical, what's going on?
Nothing beats exam: For a proper diagnosis, it really is necessary to be seen; nothing beats a physical exam and obtaining a full history. In the case you describe, it really is necessary; red rashes in the lower extremities can be a sign of infection (e.g. Cellulitis, which is serious and needs treatment immediately), contact dermatitis (such as poison ivy), eczema, psoriasis, and a variety of other problems.See 1 more doctor answer
Many possibilities: Would help if you stated where on the toe, could be shoes don't fit properly, ingrown toenail, arthritis of a joint, hallux limitis, gout, infection, fracture.....always helps when in the question you can give as much detail as possible for us to narrow down the possibilities....
Various answers: This may be caused by gout if the toe is red, hot and swollen that you can barely touch it. An ingrown toenail will have swelling and pain on the side of the nail. A broken bone or contusion will cause a deeper bone pain upon pushing to the area. For a more definitive answer, see your podiatrist.See 1 more doctor answer
