I recently developed swelling and pain on the right side of my second right toe. I do have discoid lupus but it doesn't look like a usual sore.

Toe Swelling: There are many reasons a toe can be swollen. Tight shoes, ingrown toenails, corns and calluses, for example, may all cause toes to be swollen and painful.

Pure white toe nails w/ greenish yellow tint towards the top. I keep my toes clean & feet & don't let fungus build. I have lupus & Parkinson's? Issue?
