Little toe pain?

Location of pain: Would be helpful. Often, if on the outside it is caused by a hammertoe, which will leave you with a corn or little area of inflammation known as a bursitis.

Little toe - pain anytime i wear shoes(sneakers, etc.) hard skin (corn) but pain all the time unless I am not wearing shoes.  What can be done?

Avoid pressure to it: This is very common. The little toe is rubbing the side/end of the shoe and becomes sore. There can be a callous or corn and sometimes a pad will help. Sometimes there is a underlying bone spur to the area and surgery can remove it. Sometimes just changing the shoe choice will resolve the problem. If the pad and shoe choice do not help see a podiatrist. ...Read more

The skin will heal quickly as long as you're generally healthy and no infection is not present in the wound. If no improvement within 1 week, see you primary care provider. ...Read more

Sharp pain in little toe, feels like toe but i can move it no pain. Only hurts while walking and pushing on pad belo toe. Can't walk what is it? T.T

Pushin too hard...: It sounds like you have irritated a small nerve that runs just under the foot, supplying the little toe. When you apply pressure to the irritated nerve, it responds with pain. The fat pad below may have be irritated also. The area needs to calm down. Avoid excessive pressure to the area and try some Motrin type anti-inflammatory medications. If no improvement , consult with a Healthtap specialist. ...Read more
