My big top my toe hurt. It have green and mark and blue mark. It hurt to bend down. It hurt to walk on it. What should I do? What wrong with my toe?

It's not toe late.: You've injured it somehow. The color is probably from bruising. Because you have damaged the toe, it may be difficult to move it. If it is not swollen, there's probably no severe damage. To remove all doubt, you might want to have it x-rayed. Since you did not say when this started, it is difficult to advise you to do anything else. ...Read more

I have a corn at the side of my little toe, there is dead skin on it, but when I press it on, it hurts. What causes a "corn"?

I have a corn at the side of my little toe, there is dead skin on it, but when I press it on, it hurts. What causes a "corn"?

Corn Protection.: Nothing more than hard skin caused by being compressed, agitated, rubbed and any other verb you can think of. The damage is being done by a toe bone, on the inside, and the shoe, on the outside. These two structures are trapping the skin, in the middle and causing the skin to thicken and harden. This is purely for protection, a kind of armor. The eventual pain helps fend off the further damage. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with a distal fibula avulsion about two weeks ago. Why does it hurt when I press down with my toes, but not when I push up?

Varies: There are several potential explanations for this. Plantar flexion will have a tendency to stretch the peroneal tendons, which are right near your zone if injury and so this may be irritating it. Dorsiflexuon will tend to relax them. This should resolve as you recover from your injury, I would let your doctor know in your follow up visit. ...Read more

I wore heels for 3 hrs being on my feet. The next day my big toe hurt badly. I don't usually wear heels. What could be wrong and should I stop yoga?

I wore heels for 3 hrs being on my feet. The next day my big toe hurt badly. I don't usually wear heels. What could be wrong and should I stop yoga?

No, you should stop: Wearing high heels! Three hours is a long time to wear uncomfortable shoes that throw your posture off and puts excessive pressure on your balls of your feet & UR toes! U could have strained UR big toe. If it's swollen and inflamed, U can use cool compresses and elevate it, and see if that helps. If not, see your doctor! U can always do yoga from a chair/seated position if standing is hard to do. ...Read more

Numbness in some toes after wearing heels. Walked barefoot in cold. Has lasted a week. Hurts to curl toes. No swelling/discoloration. What is wrong?

Numbness in some toes after wearing heels. Walked barefoot in cold. Has lasted a week. Hurts to curl toes. No swelling/discoloration. What is wrong?

Numbness: You didn't say where the numbness is. If it is at toes 3 and 4 it could be a neuroma. The walking barefoot in the cold, while not very smart, may not be a complicating factor unless you have frostbite. If that were the case you would have some puffiness in the affected area due to the freezing of the tissues and resultant cell lysis. See your podiatrist for help. ...Read more

Big toe is swollen on one side, hurts to press on it. Havnt clipped toenail in awhile. Put pro oxide on it nothing bubbled. What do I do?

Infected ingrown: Infected ingrown toe nails cause swelling and tenderness. Bacteria grow between the skin and the nail. Ingrown toe nails irritate and pierce the surrounding skin. This in itself can make it swell. The resulting infection usually needs to be drained by a dr.
One thing that does help is soaking the foot in a basin of lukewarm water with 2 tablespoons of epsom salt. ...Read more
