I have a burning sensation in my right big toe because I had an gout attack . what can I do about the burning sensation?

Hang in there

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Gout can be a very painful condition to suffer with. As the gout attach subsides, so do the redness, swelling and pain. In the meantime take it easy and rest the foot where possible. Avoid tight fitting shoes. Take any prescribed medications, and talk to your doctor about options for pain relief. Hope you feel better soon!

I recently started to have a heated/burning sensation under my big toe. No associated pain noted. What could cause this?

Few things

Extremity-lower-foot
Could cause this. First, I would examine the skin to see if there is any sign of cracked skin, blistering or scaling as a fissure or athletes foot may be present. If not, I would question you with regards to low back pain or if you are possibly diabetic. I would also evaluate you for compression neuropathy of the deep peroneal nerve or Tarsal tunnel syndrome.

My left little toe and my right big toe as a sharp burning sensation when stretching to the side and is clicking when pressing on top of little toe.

Burning sensation

Toes
Can be a sign of neuropathy, otherwise these toes on different feet are not related. Clicking, can be gas expelling from a joint or a tendon snapping on a piece of bone or out of a groove. You should see a foot doc and have it checked out.

My left big toe has been hurting me for 8 months now. it has gotten worse. At first it was just a burning sensation in the toe, but now hurts so bad.?

Rule out arthritis

Extremity-lower-foot-big_toe
Persistent pain in any joint must be checked for arthritis. An x-ray would be the first step in diagnosis.

I have a painful, burning sensation at the base of the pad of my big toe. It started yesterday when I was practicing dance. I am 32, female, and fit?

A couple of things

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
There are a couple of small bones under the bone at the base of the big toe called sesamoids. These can become inflammed or cracked. Or you might have pinched a nerve in the ball of your foot. See a podiatrist for examination and x-rays.
