It Feels Like My Toes Are On Fire
I had quite a large rose thorn stab into my toe deep enough to bleed quite a bit .. happened over 6 hours ago and it feels like it's burning on fire?
SOAK: You should soak that TOE (FOOT) in plain WATER for the rest of the day and into the night for as long as you are awake...the thorn contains many organisms and you must be watchful for infection (continued pain/fever) In addition you need a TETNUS update! SO a visit to your PCP (Primary Care Provider) is indicated!) Good luck Hope this helps ...Read more

Raynaud's: The problem you describe is known as Raynaud's. In a young person like yourself this tends to be a more benign condition. It is basically an exaggerated response to the cold whereby the small blood vessels in hands and feet constrict to preserve heat in the body's core. Patients should avoid cold, use gloves, and avoid smoking. An appointment with your doctor would be helpful. ...Read more
Tests show blockage in both legs. Dr said to take low dose aspirin daily. Why do several toes feel like they are on fire?
Blood flow: It may be from many reasons, but if you do have arterial blockage of blood flow to the legs, then the toes will not be getting enough blood flow and that intense pain is them telling you they are starving for oxygen, nutrients, and blood.

I was recently bitten by several fire ants on my right big toe. Two enlarged blisters developed, one between the toes which is a sac, and one midtoe.
Fire Ants: Agree w dr. Fisher. Fire ants don't actually bite. Pinchers grip skin while stinging injects solenopsin - an alkaloid venom. A fire ant is the gift that keeps on giving – as 1 ant can repeatedly sting you in different locations. Apply a 1 to 1 mix of baking soda & water to decrease pain & reaction. Or try paste of water & meat tenderizer, Benadryl for itching or tylenol or nsaid's for pain. Don't. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
