My big top my toe hurt. It have green and mark and blue mark. It hurt to bend down. It hurt to walk on it. What should I do? What wrong with my toe?
It's not toe late.: You've injured it somehow. The color is probably from bruising. Because you have damaged the toe, it may be difficult to move it. If it is not swollen, there's probably no severe damage. To remove all doubt, you might want to have it x-rayed. Since you did not say when this started, it is difficult to advise you to do anything else. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hereditary: Often, curled toes are hereditary. Other causes can be improper shoes and foot instability causing the toes to "clench" the floor.

Hello my name krystal my boyfriend has pain and reddness on his fouth toe and cant really walk on it.. What is this? And what should i do?
Seek medical care: What I mean is seek in-person medical care, whether his FamilyDoc or Urgent Care, depending upon degree of pain. Perhaps he broke toe although you didn't mention injury. Perhaps he has an infection b/c you said it's red. Gout is another possibility although more commonly in big toe. Bottom line, there are many causes of toe pain & redness and he needs in-person (not online) medical evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would be the cause of my 2.5 yo daughter starting to walk pigeon toed? Is it something serious
Be flexible!: Most of the time the cause of this is excessive laxity of ligaments in the hips and knees and not actually a foot problem that causes the appearence of feet turning in "pigeon toed". If she sits in a "w" sit with legs back behind her, you can discourage this. Encourage lots of walking, play etc using her legs to strengthen muscles. Mention to your doc next time in to check general tone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
