Banged 2nd toe into a rock barefoot.Toe swollen, bruised at top joint of toe, pain when bend forward, can't bend back difficulty walking.

The only thing I can: Add to dr. Bernstein's excellent answer is don't keep taking Ibuprofen or aleve, (naproxen) since, if it is fractured, oral anti-inflammatories will delay fracture healing. I think it's important to get it x-rayed, so call a toe truck and bring your little piggy to a foot doctor asap. Feel better and good luck! ...Read more

How do I straighten my 4 month old 4th toe which is now crooked under the 3rd toe. It's been this way since birth and appears to be bent at the first joint of the toe.

How do I straighten my 4 month old 4th toe which is now crooked under the 3rd toe. It's been this way since birth and appears to be bent at the first joint of the toe.

The : The short answer is... You can't. Most minor malformations like this usually don't cause any problems with walking, running, and otherwise enjoyment of life. As your child grows older, this may cause some problems, like getting a corn on the toe where rubbing occurs, but even this is iffy. The only way to fix things is surgery, and unless it's interfering with your child's ability to walk or is causing pain, i would not recommend surgery until the bones have stopped growing, usually late teens, and then, only if it's causing a problem. ...Read more
