Doctor insights on:
Short Second Toe
Toe jamming.: More than likely, the second toe is longer than your great toe or your third toe. The distal or top part of the toe sticks out a bit further and the distal joint gets jammed. This will, in time cause the distal part of the toe to inflame and resist movement, especially bending. Shoes and more importantly socks can play a major role in this condition. An evaluation by a specialist can help you.See 2 more doctor answers
What could cause a bite feeling on the tip of your second toe, it wakes you up. Feeling is every few minutes?
Nerve related: If you do not have any sores on your toe and it is most likely nerve irritation this could be from local nerve irritation or possibly a neuroma or even from higher up at the ankle or even in the low back area. If anti-inflammatories do not help in a couple of days then it is reasonable to get checked by a medical professional.

Podiatrist: Best advice is to see a Podiatrist for exam
Hammer toe?: It sounds like the second toe may be contracted at the joint. The most likely causes for a second toe being hammered are long second toe and a bunion. So if the second toe is longer than the great toe then the shoe hits the tip of the toe causing it to contract. If there is a bunion, then it's the great toe pushing over to the outside of the foot not allowing the second toe to sit straight.See 1 more doctor answer
Genetic Makeup: This is the result of your unique genetic makeup; some people have a longer one, some a shorter, and some the same length as the big toe. The length of the second toe does not have any correlation with intelligence, sex life or any of the other number of things I have been asked about in the office.See 2 more doctor answers
Treatment 0ptions.: Treatment options for the management of hammertoes include conservative and surgical management. Conservative management options include use of orthotic devices, change in shoe wear, medications such as oral no-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids), steroid injections, padding of corns and calluses, and splinting and strapping.See 3 more doctor answers

Twice a day my second toe is more warm than other toes. Its very evident. What can it will cause or what is it?
Friction: From rubbing in a shoe on top or at end because it's usually the longest toe. Try a better-fitting shoe and try icing it when its at it's warmest or reddest. Your first step in figuring out if it's a simple fix.
My big toe is starting to turn inward and cross over on top of the second toe. Is there anything to do for this?
Bunion: If it doesn't hurt surgery is not required. There are many devices that you would put in between the 1st and 2nd toes to spread them apart. This is a temporary solution. Orthotics can help slow down the process of the increasing bunion (big toe over the 2nd) by correcting underline cause. Surgery is the only permanent solution. Please see a podiatrist to evaluate for your needs.See 1 more doctor answer
