Severe bunions on both big toes. Second toes on tips have no feeling and nail is turning dark brown?

Severe bunions on both big toes. Second toes on tips have no feeling and nail is turning dark brown?

The second toes: May be longer than your first toes and your shoes may be too small. With regards to the bunions if they hurt you, you can have them surgically fixed. Your only other option is to find shoes that accomodate them.....which is difficult to do. Your young, I'd fix them. ...Read more

With the possibility of melanoma on the list, I would not delay the examination too long. ...Read more

I have a mole between my toes and wanted to know if part of a mole can fall off. It was raised and brown now the lump is flat and dark flesh colored.

Maybe, maybe not.: I suppose it could, but I'm more inclined to believe that the mole could be, in reality, a callus. It is not uncommon for them to be between the toes, mainly because of the potential for the toes to rub against each other. They can cause a small amount of bleeding which would make it look brown and raised. When it comes off, it would be flat and have darker color. To remove all doubt, see a doc. ...Read more
