Can your toes rubbing against shoes cause any damage?

Can your toes rubbing against shoes cause any damage?

Can cause corns...: Corns are callouses on the toes and are caused mainly by shoe irritation over a period of time. They can just be trimmed by a podiatrist, but will usually come back. The real cause is bony enlargement or malpositioning of the toe. There is a real simple surgery to smooth off the underlying bone and the corn should go away permanently. You can also have your shoes stretched or wear wider shoes. ...Read more

I got a blister in my toe from rubbing on my shoes while walking for hours. Is this infected? Pic is in my file. It's red but not sore anymore.

I got a blister in my toe from rubbing on my shoes while walking for hours. Is this infected? Pic is in my file. It's red but not sore anymore.

Blister/ingrown: If its truly just a blister it is completely sterile inside the bubble. Since nothing has gotten in nothing gets out. Leave it be and it will reabsorb and form a callus where it was. Protect it from popping with band-aid. If it is an ingrown nail (or you see it along side the nail) then it could be infected and you should apply an antibiotic cream and see a podiatrist immediately to care for it. ...Read more

Don't all blisters you get from rubbing your foot against a shoe contain puss?

Don't all blisters you get from rubbing your foot against a shoe contain puss?

Not at all: Blisters from friction will fill with a serrous fluid. Pus can form if they become infected. Smaller blisters should be left intact so as to not allow them to become infected. If they do tear open apply antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage. If they do not resolve in a week or so be sure to see your doctor. If you do see pus, they are already infected, and you should see a doc much sooner. ...Read more

New shoes make my small toe hurt, what can I do?

Roomier toe box: You can use a shoe stretcher to stretch the area of the small toe in your new shoes.
