I have a lot of calluses on my feet. I'm standing probably between 10-12 hours a day. Is it caused by my shoes? How can I prevent calluses for good?

See a Podiatrist: Calluses are largely dependent on the shape of your foot and the way you walk; the type of shoes you wear also play a role. I would suggest having your feet evaluated by a Podiatrist; you may be a good candidate for custom orthotics. ...Read more

I have calluses on the bottom of both of my big toes, no matter what shoes I run in (even with out any) I still get them, now one of them is getting pa?

See a podiatrist...: These calluses may be related to a biomechanical condition called hallux limitus. If the big toe can't bend "up" during activities as much as it should, more pressure will be placed at the bottom of the big toe causing calluses. There MAY also be a small "extra" bone (a sesamoid bone) at the bottom of the joint. An x-ray will tell. ...Read more

Best way to get: Rid of this is to see a podiatrist and have a small operation to remove the point bone causing the problem. This will get rid of the problem permenantly. Otherwise, wear shoes that don't rub on your toe, which is often difficult, or buy a silicone toe sleeve. For the corn itself, file it with an emory board. ...Read more

Tips of 1st & 2nd toes hurt after day of driving, possibly in shoes & socks that were too short. Pain continues after 12 hours. Not discolored.

Tips of 1st & 2nd toes hurt after day of driving, possibly in shoes & socks that were too short. Pain continues after 12 hours. Not discolored.

Mild Trauma: Hi, Since distribution of your symptoms are just localized to the tips of the first 2 toes on one foot and no other issues this is likely local nerve trauma. It does not follow one nerve distribution suggesting single nerve damage higher up the leg. This should go away in a few weeks. If it dose not, or this progresses, may be useful to see a neurologist for other cause ie diabetes. ...Read more

Gels sleeves/splints: There are gel sleeves for the toes to reduce the rubbing of the toe on shoe or the big toe as well as splints to pull the toe down and or over. However, in my experience most of the time these need surgical straightening. ...Read more

Wear 1/2 orthotics and remove insoles of shoes, so big toe that stix up won't hurt. Must wear some cushioning at toes to prevent shocks to knee?

Wear 1/2 orthotics and remove insoles of shoes, so big toe that stix up won't hurt. Must wear some cushioning at toes to prevent shocks to knee?

Metatarsal Cushion: Some of our patients need that extra room in their shoes because the big toe sticks up too much. Try a spenco insert for that extra cushion but cut out the area under the toes to give them more room. You can also try to add a hapad metatarsal support to the end of the orthotic device to attempt to take pressure off the metatarsals.

I got small cut in my toe I was later for work and forgot my socks and my feet got sweaty in my tennis shoes. So im worried about an infection?

Calm Down.: Why worry. Chances are, nothing will come of it. Just be alert as to any change in the toe. Typically, redness, pain or swelling are the hallmarks of a impending infection. When you can, clean the wound and apply a bit of topical antibiotic. If appropriate, a band aid to finish the wound care. If a change in status occurs, the call your family doctor for advice. ...Read more

Bunions and bumps on: Toes will require proper shoes that have enough room in the toe box area. The brand of shoes is your personal preference and doesn't really matter. What you need is shoes that accommodates your deformities. You can also place small cushions on the toes and or around the bunion area that are non medicated for protection, whether they be foam or felt skin or gel type. ...Read more

Sweating: Isolated foot sweating would probably respond well to drysol (aluminum chloride) solution. If that doesn't work then iontophoresis would be the next step. A last step would be botox. This also works great but is very expensive and would not be covered by most insurance (to the best of my knowledge). ...Read more

It takes some nerve.: Strange feelings on the bottom of the foot, as you have described, are due to some type of nerve involvement. Your description sounds as though you are developing a inter metatarsal neuroma. This is an enlarging of a nerve that is now sending confusing signals that you perceive as something you're stepping on. Changing shoes was the perfect first step for resolution.
