I was wondering why the top left of my second toe constantly hurts ecspecially when I bend it?

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. ...Read more

Second toe has a bump on it?

Second toe has a bump on it?

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. ...Read more

Make an appointment with a Podiatrist or Orthopedic foot specialist for x-rays and expert evaluation. Good wishes:) ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I had fusion on my second toe with wires, had them removed on Tuesday and have had pain since I no its only two days after but realy swollen?

Should: Not really be that painful. I assume the pin was removed after several weeks. By now the healing process should have been well underway. Some pain and swelling is deemed normal, but severe pain not normal. See the surgeon for it. Try to rest and elevate your foot as much as possible. ...Read more

It goes without saying that if the condition spreads toe other toes, foot or other areas of the body, see your family doctor. ...Read more
