Probably not.: Follow the instructions you were given when the stitches were put in as they usually tell you when they should come out. ...Read more

I am also a dancer and when I sit in my split my toe like curls is there anyway I can makenit better?

No split sitting!: Sitting in a split will not improve your flexibility any more than doing it for 20 or 30 seconds at a time. Dynamic warm up (i.e. Grand plié) will help to warm and lengthen your muscles. Sitting in a stretch is more likely to loosen your ligaments-dangerous because you cannot muscularly control this flexibility when dancing. Check out www.Iadms.Org and www.Pama.Org for dance medicine specialists. ...Read more

How to eliminate corns on toes?

Depends: Corns on toes can be caused by extrinsic (shoewear) and/or intrinsic factors. Eliminating tight shoes is the first step. Corn care with shaving, soaks, and padding can help. Occasionally, surgery is recommended for corns caused from toe deformities that don't respond to nonoperative measures. See a foot specialist for evaluation. ...Read more

How do you remove corns that are on your pinky toes?

Corns: Can be filed down at home. Once they are under control, you can use a foam or silicone toe spacer or sleeve to delay the problem from recurring. These can be purchased at a drugstore. Also wear wider shoes. Avoid "corn remover pads" as they usually contain salicylic acid which can irritate the area. If you have numbness in the feet, over the counter corn remover acids should never be used. ...Read more

Can toes get arthritest?

Dr. Bradly Shollenberger
Board Certified, Podiatry

Yes: Arthritis is pain and inflammation of a joint, so any body part that has joints can have arthritis. I've seen arthritis in all toes, but especially where the great toe meets the rest of the foot. It can be caused by poor foot mechanics, trauma, or diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. A podiatrist should be able to diagnose the case and offer treatment options. ...Read more

What causes toes to lock?

Dr. Eric Lullove
Board Certified, Podiatry

396K people helped

Locking toes?: If you are referring to toes that lock and curl, they are referred to as hammertoes or clawtoes. This is an abnormal compensation for pronation of the foot against the ground, which causes the toes to "grab" the ground. This is a progressive slow orthopedic problem that can cause callouses and ulcers to the top of the toes over time. Seek a local podiatrist for an x-ray evaluation. ...Read more
