Several things!: Could be activity related-what did you the day or two before. Are shoes supportive and good fit. If the pain does last for more than a few days, it may represent arthritis.

My big toes hurt@night,the outside of big toes, are red and a little more dry looking than the rest, also my pinky's toes. Ache on outside of my feet?

Different toe Box.: So let me see. The outside of the big toes and the outside of the little toes, both hurt and are a little red. The first place I would be looking for a cause is your shoes. The areas in question are the areas that receive the most pressure from shoes that are not fitting your foot right. Red dry looking and aching are the warning signs of ingrown toenails, or at least inflamed nail borders. ...Read more

Little toe pain?

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. If on the inside, you can have a soft corn caused by the 5th toe rubbing against the 4th. If you banged it in the middle of the night going to the bathroom you may have fractured it.
A foot doc can help no matter the cause. ...Read more

Why do the sides of my big toes hurt when I run?

Side of big toe hurt: The side of the big toe (hallux) hurts when one runs when the toe grips the ground during the running cycle. The hallux does this before propulsion (next phase of the gait cycle). As it grips the ground, the medial side of the toe usually abuts the ground, sustaining friction. As this occurs repeatedly, the medial side of the toe would hurt and/or develop a callus (aka pinch callus) or blister. ...Read more

You will get better answers if you are able to provide a bit more info. Best of luck. ...Read more

Tips of 1st & 2nd toes hurt after day of driving, possibly in shoes & socks that were too short. Pain continues after 12 hours. Not discolored.

Mild Trauma: Hi, Since distribution of your symptoms are just localized to the tips of the first 2 toes on one foot and no other issues this is likely local nerve trauma. It does not follow one nerve distribution suggesting single nerve damage higher up the leg. This should go away in a few weeks. If it dose not, or this progresses, may be useful to see a neurologist for other cause ie diabetes. ...Read more

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 an 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
