Blister?: A pustule is like a pimple or small superficial abscess. See a physician for treatment, especially if you are diabetic or might be diabetic. If you do not know whether you are diabetic, see your family md and get some blood tests.

On top of my foot by my second toe I have seaver pain like a charlie horse?

On top of my foot by my second toe I have seaver pain like a charlie horse?

Have it checked out: Severe pain on the top of the foot feeling like a charlie horse is not a common finding. Your recent activity history, how much your run or walk for exercise can affect this. If it's acute and relieved by pain meds, then that's not as much a problem as if it's been continuous without relief. Best is to have it checked out by your doctor to see what the exam shows, and to know for sure what it is.

I have a swollen foot and I can not bend my second toe, at all what can I do?

Foot swelling: Hi, I suggest that you see a doctor for evaluation, there is a possibility that you might have Gout if there is no history of trauma to the toe. Also infection is another possibility. See a doctor ASAP.

I have pain in second toe when walking and it hurts on top of my foot, and painful to bear weight on foot?

I have pain in second toe when walking and it hurts on top of my foot, and painful to bear weight on foot?

Immobilization: Most likely you have an inflammatory process of the 2nd toe joint. I would recommend stiff sole shoes, and advil (ibuprofen) for couple of weeks and if doesn't resolve, you should see a podiatrist.

My second toe on my left foot is numb and hurts. This has been going on for a few weeks now. What would cause this?

You could have: A localized nerve compression like a neuroma, or anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome (compression of deep peroneal nerve). If the second toe is the longest toe your shoes can be too small. There are systemic disease like diabetes that can cause numbness, and vitamin deficiencies as well.

Second toe on right foot numb at top of toe, I do occasionally wear wedges, what could cause this, and how to help it?

Second toe on right foot numb at top of toe, I do occasionally wear wedges, what could cause this, and how to help it?

Nerve compression: Depending on the heel height, your foot can slide forward even in a wedge and in some cases can keep pressure at the top/tip of the 2nd toe. This pressure can create nerve compression and cause numbness. To alleviate this you can try a lower heel or consider use of a ball of the foot pad just behind the ball of the foot to restore the transverse arch. You can also see a podiatrist for options.

My second toe on my left foot has been swollen and red for the last week. It hurts to the touch and is painful to just leave it be.

See a podiatrist.: Redness and swelling could be from trauma or fracture (did you stub it?), from painful arthritic conditions like gout, or from an infection. See your podiatrist to narrow down your possibilities and discuss individualized treatment.

The base of the second toe of my right foot is mildly numb. There is no pain and I don't believe here is any swelling either. Please help.

Neuroma: Your symptoms are consistent with a possible morton's neuroma. Look it up. This is a localized nerve issue, which should only affect the bottom area of the base of a toe many treatment options. Diagnosis may change, as your symptoms change.

Hello. Numbness and occasional pin prick sensation on my second toe on my right foot. Highly localized, near tip of toe in area touching big toe, .?

Is the second toe: The longest toe? Is it hammered at all? These are things to consider.....a nerve entrapment or neuroma is a possibility as well.....that's where I would start.

What possible reasons would my second toe on my right foot be numb, along with the side of my great toe? It has been this way for at least a week.

Varies: Sounds like an interdigital nerve could be inflammed. This can be due to a number of reasons (trauma, tight shoes), and will likely resolve without treatment. If it persists or gets worse then a podiatrist may be helpful.
