My big toe is red an numb and somewhat sore. Now my toenail is yellow and trying to fall off. What is wrong with it?

Onycholysis/mycosis: Your nail is coming loose because fungus in the toenail distorts the shape of the nail. The nail becomes loose and constantly moves with walking causing irritation and redness and infection. See a podiatrist for antibiotics and treatment options.

I'm a little confuse: With your question. You have two complaints yes? They sound like they are separate problems. I would recommend you see a foot doctor for both issues. 1) you should get a diagnosis for your "lumps".... Without seeing a picture it is hard to formulate a guess. 2) your big toe - the first mpj bears a lot of weight and xrays and in personal evaluation is important to rule out what is wrong. ...Read more
