To keep swelling down you may want to keep it elevated and put ice on it. Wrap the ice in a towel -- not directly on your skin. Ice your toe 15 minutes on, and then 15 minutes off. Good luck. ...Read more

My second toes in my feet are much longer than my other toes. How is it longer than my big toe? In addition, it almost always hurts when I walk a lot.

My second toes in my feet are much longer than my other toes. How is it longer than my big toe? In addition, it almost always hurts when I walk a lot.

This is normal: 30-40% of the population have a longer second toe than the other toes. This is very normal. The reason that it hurts when you walk a lot is that the long toe is grabbing to the ground and thereby causing the pain. Try vaseline to the area, and make sure that your shoes are large enough to accomodate the longer toe. If this is still bothersome, see your podiatrist for other solutions. ...Read more

Big toe rather large always stubbing it and having accidents. Now hurts walking and is making knee hurts from walking funny to stop toe hurting?

Big toe rather large always stubbing it and having accidents. Now hurts walking and is making knee hurts from walking funny to stop toe hurting?

Fix the Toe.: A rather large toe, secondary to multiple injuries, could spell an underlying problem. Compensatory changes, due to pain, can cause changes in normal knee and even hip function. Stop the accelerating problem and see a specialist. It is easier to address the toe problem now, rather than have issues with the ankle, knee or even hip, later. ...Read more
