Dr. Eric R. Tepper answered:

I have pain in the base and a sharp pain at the tip of the second toe. The pain has moved to the base of the third and fourth toe. I did not have any injury. It feels like its swollen,but is not. It feels like a wrinkle. What should I do?

Possible neuroma

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
The symptoms you describe are consistent with a neuroma, which is a benign nerve tumor affecting the nerves going to the toes. The pain is worse while walking barefoot on a hard surface or when enclosed in shoes. Steroid injections and/or surgery are the treatments available.

Banged 2nd toe into a rock barefoot.Toe swollen,bruised at top joint of toe,pain when bend forward, can't bend back difficulty walking.

The only thing I can

add to Dr. Bernstein's excellent answer is don't KEEP taking ibuprofen or Aleve, since, if it is fractured, oral anti-inflammatories will delay fracture healing. I think it's important to get it x-rayed, so call a toe truck and bring your little piggy to a foot doctor ASAP. Feel better and good luck!

Leg toe pain?

More info

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
There are many reasons one can have leg and toe pain. Without information on quality of pain, time present, what makes it better/worse, how'd it start (all at once, due to injury, gradually), there is no great answer.

Little toe pain?

Location of pain

Corn_alergy
would be helpful. Often, if on the outside it is caused by a hammertoe, which will leave you with a corn or little area of inflammation known as a bursitis. If on the inside, you can have a soft corn caused by the 5th toe rubbing against the 4th. If you banged it in the middle of the night going to the bathroom you may have fractured it. A foot doc can help no matter the cause.
