Can mortons neuroma cause red painful toes when standing? Pain and redness eases when not on foot.

Next would be to try NSAIDS, PT followed by a steroid injection. ...Read more

What can be done about a morton's neuroma?

Variety of treatment: Neuromas are inflammation and/or damage to the nerve. If you treat the problem early, you have a better chance for success. Cortisone injections, nsaids, good shoes and supports can sometimes help. If your symptoms have been present for greater than 6 months, then conservative care is not as successful. Usually, surgical removal is the definitive treatment for chronic problems. Dr l. ...Read more
