Little toe - pain anytime i wear shoes(sneakers, etc.) hard skin (corn) but pain all the time unless I am not wearing shoes. What can be done?

Avoid pressure to it: This is very common. The little toe is rubbing the side/end of the shoe and becomes sore. There can be a callous or corn and sometimes a pad will help. Sometimes there is a underlying bone spur to the area and surgery can remove it. Sometimes just changing the shoe choice will resolve the problem. If the pad and shoe choice do not help see a podiatrist. ...Read more

Probably broken toe: You can bring your shoe to an old-fashioned shoe repair shop where they have "lasts" that they can fit into your shoes and stretch the leather. Those stores are getting hard to find because people are buying more sneakers and fewer good leather shoes. If your fifth toe is really angulated a lot, go to either to a podiatrist or a foot orthopedist. ...Read more

Woke with severe pain left little toe joint. No injury remembered but has been hurting a little for weeks. I don't wear tight shoes or heels.

Get it checked: Trauma and shoe irritation would be the most likely reasons. Check between the toes for signs of irritation or a soft corn. If nothing unusual is noted, have a podiatrist evaluate it. You may need x-rays to check for occult fracture or arthritis. ...Read more

My little toe is curling inward. It rubs against the adjacent toe. My shoes are roomy. Do any over-the-counter toe straighteners work?

No: Otc toe straighteners do not straighten toes. They can cushion the area but that's all. The cause is complicated but the easiest answer is the tendons aren't pulling properly. Surgery is the only way to straighten the toe v. ...Read more

Wore shoes tight on little toe for 4 wks. 3mths of toe and outside edge painful, hypersensitive. Can't tolerate touch. Neuroma? Stress f? Injection?

Wore shoes tight on little toe for 4 wks. 3mths of toe and outside edge painful, hypersensitive. Can't tolerate touch. Neuroma? Stress f? Injection?

Evaluate & Treat.: It sounds like the nerve has been traumatized by the excessive pressure. I don't think that it is as bad as a neuroma, but a severe neuritis is entirely possible. There could be an issue with the bone, so an x-ray would be warranted. I would think that three months should have allowed the condition to at least partially resolve. Next would be to try NSAIDS, PT followed by a steroid injection. ...Read more

What is the best way to treat hammer toe ( little toe) ? I am using a silicone gel tube & wider shoes but still have pain.

What is the best way to treat hammer toe ( little toe) ? I am using a silicone gel tube & wider shoes but still have pain.

Hammered toes: Hammer toes develop when the foot flexors take over the extensors and a hammered appearance of the toe ensues. They can be painful and despite wider shoes and silicon covers, may need to be corrected by a surgical procedure. A Podiatrist should be consulted to explain to you the procedure and its risks. Good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed Interdigital nerve compression 4th/5th but hypersensitive little toe/foot, can't tolerate shoes, whole foot now becoming numb. Misdiagnosed?

Diagnosed Interdigital nerve compression 4th/5th but hypersensitive little toe/foot, can't tolerate shoes, whole foot now becoming numb. Misdiagnosed?

Not Common: If only the 4th and 5th toes were involved originally, and the diagnosis was made based on that observation, then the diagnosis was acceptable. The effects of time have now caused further, more extensive tissue involvement and updated diagnosis is needed. Unilateral whole foot neuropathies are confusing and further testing of the entire foot as well as lower leg needs to be done to clear the air. ...Read more

There could be many: Reasons those red dots are there. I.E. A bite, a scratch, an abrasion etc. Babies do kick their feet around. It may also be none of the above the hard thing is that we can't see the red spots as you do.

The past 3 years the ball of my left foot and my big toe hurt (can't bend it to wear closed shoes)?

The past 3 years the ball of my left foot and my big toe hurt (can't bend it to wear closed shoes)?

Hallux rigidus: Very possibly, you have what is termed "hallux rigidus" or a rigidly fixed great toe joint. This is an "wear and tear" type of arthritic condition localized to this specific joint. The inability to bend the great toe will limit your ability to propulse, or push-off, during each step, causing you to often transfer your weight to another part of the foot, in your case, maybe the ball of the foot. ...Read more

When I run, by mile 6 or 7 my middle toes burn and hurt with each foot strike. I wear good shoes with "met" pads. What else can I do?

See foot specialist: Esp. If you're new to mid foot strike running, and if your'e running in newtons, it may be your toes flexing over the met pads on the impact. Try a different pair of "mid foot strike" designed running shoes. You might also find a knowledgable running trainer to analyze your stride. If it persists, see an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in feet. ...Read more
