Down under the toe.: It sounds as though you've managed to injure the toe. Bruising is a sign of underlying tissue damage and steps should be taken to minimize further damage. Exercising should be eliminated until the effects of the injury are under control. Ice compression, elevation and rest are the mainstays of treatment. To remove all doubt, have the toe x-rayed and examined to assess the degree of injury. ...Read more

Need more informatio: The spots that you describe as blood spots need to be evaluated. I can't tell from your description as to whether the blood spots are tender themselves or are these dilated vessels, are there areas of loss of tissue, or are there neurologic issues involved, so we need more information. These could be an area of trauma depending on your shoe ...Read more

After running had sharp needle like pain in big toe and sharp needle pain in heel just in those two spots what on earth?!

After running had sharp needle like pain in big toe and sharp needle pain in heel just in those two spots what on earth?!

Needle pain: This sounds like nerve contusion, depending on the location at the heel, and definitely at the toe. Without a physical exam it sounds like over pronation resulting in the big toe pain. Xrays are certainly also needed to rule out bone spurs and fracture. See your podiatrist for that evaluation and x rays. ...Read more

Could be a few thing: A black spot can be anything from a freckle, to a mole, to melanoma. Most likely it is a freckle or a mole but it is important to get it checked by a dermatologist.

Hello, a few days ago I noticed a tiny brown spot at my fingertip at my big toe. Is there something to worry about?

I'm not certain: What you mean by "at my fingertip at my big toe". if you're referring just to your big toe, sometimes a blood blister or small contusion can occur there as the big toe can bump up against the inside of the tip of the shoe. If it's more like a mole and doesn't go away in a week or so or also on your finger tip, it would be a good idea to have a professional look at it. ...Read more
