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

In a cold environment my feet turn blue/purple an my toes sometimes go numb if I'm in a warm envir. my feet turn red an toes feel like they're on fire?
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. Follow your doctor's advice, but if pain continues you may need to see a vascular specialist for treatment evaluation. Good luck, hope this helps! ...Read more
Wearing winter boots, my little toe went from red to purplish red and burns like on fire. Skin crusted then peeled off and now burns again. Blister?
Have checked,: Especially if it continues to stay a purplish color. This could be a number of things, from simple skin irritation to an infection to vascular issues.

My son stummbled into a fire ant nest the other day and his toes are are swollen and red. Its been a week and he still acts uncomfortable.?
Ouch!: I sympathize deeply with your son - fire ants are diabolical critters, and their bites burn like fire, as their name suggests. It does not surprise me at all that he is still uncomfortable after a week; it may be another week or two before it's all over. Feet heal particularly slowly because he is walking on them. A washcloth soaked in cool water and applied 2-3 times a day will help somewhat. ...Read more
