I have a sharp pain in the tip of my second toe when pressure is applied to it. I don't have pain anywhere else in my feet.

Consult podiatrist: The second toe is often the 'lead dog' in your walking foot, and thus takes more potentially damaging pressure. There are many physiological causes of pain...abnormal nerve pressure, joint lining inflammation, etc. Try padding, or a change of shoes, or off the shelf orthotic supports, and consult a podiatrist if the problem continues. ...Read more

Looking for some guidance regarding pain in left foot. Pain at tip of 2nd and 3rd toes while walking. No real discomfort elsewhere in toes or foot?

Looking for some guidance regarding pain in left foot. Pain at tip of 2nd and 3rd toes while walking. No real discomfort elsewhere in toes or foot?

TWO THINGS: I'm assuming no injury/trauma. First, is it the very early signs of a pinched nerve supplying the second and third toes; it's called a neuroma, most commonly affecting the 3rd and 4th toes. Second, if diabetic, is it the very, very early signs of diabetic neuropathy? Those are my thoughts.
Sincerely,
Dr. Latva ...Read more

Granuloma Pyogrnicum: Sounds like you may not have the complete picture. Exuberant granulation is caused by chronic foreign body tissue reaction whereby chemotaxis of inflammatory infiltrate and leukocyte cells macrophages etc cause angioneogenesis in an attempt to encircle an ingrowing nail or thorn or other material. This in turns forms excess tissue growth which may in turn epithelialize when rejected foreign body. ...Read more

Cause of toes turning blacked?

Nails or toes?: If you mean the toes themselves, this is a little worrisome. Usually the skin will turn black if there is tissue death--necrosis--of the skin. This can happen if blood vessels are damaged or inflamed. Sometimes, blood under the skin can cause this appearance as well. If you mean the nails, that can be a sign that a mold has gotten under the nails. Either way, I recommend a doctor visit. ...Read more

What causes hammer toes?

What causes hammer toes?

Bent toe.: People can get hammertoes several different ways, including just an unlucky roll of the genetic dice, but the fundamental result is usually the same: a toe that has drawn back and no longer sits straight or "flat".
