This is purely for protection, a kind of armor. The eventual pain helps fend off the further damage. ...Read more

This should resolve as you recover from your injury, I would let your doctor know in your follow up visit. ...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?

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
