Joint at bottom of big toe enlarged and painful?

Arthritis: Actually it could be a number of different things but if it has all of a sudden become red, hot, swollen, and painful it may be gout.

Toe push off.: It would reasonable to assume that you baby will use his legs to forcibly push his feet against anything his foot can come in contact with. Check to see if this is not happening. Foot or toe pressure against the crib, for example. Could be the beginning of a inflamed toe secondary to pressure. ...Read more

I have had a lump on the bottom of big toe on right foot for 5 days. It swollen, red and burning pain, at least at times. I do have RA. I was thin?

How red, how hot.: I guess RA might be a possibility, but my money goes with gout as a better possibility. There could be a cellulitis secondary to overuse, trauma or even foreign body insertion. Clearly, possibilities would be better understood with a evaluation of the area and some simple testing. ...Read more

I chipped a bone at bottom of my big toe, how long will I need to use crutches for?

I chipped a bone at bottom of my big toe, how long will I need to use crutches for?

Chip off the old....: It's hard to say without seeing the x-ray. The chip size, location and positioning are all indicators. I would expect that there is a chance that the chip can heal back on to the main bone. The more movement, either by weight bearing of actual toe bending, the less chance of the chip healing. Ask your doctor for his assessment. ...Read more

2 warts on the bottom+side of big toe. I have been going at it with a scalpel trying to get the roots out but they keep getting bigger. They hurt?

Do not scrape...: In your attempt to get to the root of the problem by scraping the virus away, you are actually spreading the virus. Warts thrive on the foot, in part, because of the increased moisture. You must dry or dehydrate the surrounding skin before debridement can work. There are various solutions that will do the job. Consult with a foot specialist for the various options. ...Read more

TarTar.: It is probably best to get to the nature as to why the skin is raw and won't grow back. It could be due to mechanical irritation or worse, an underlying infection. You may be doing yourself harm if first you don't have the toe evaluated by a specialist. These things can get out of hand quickly. ...Read more
