In brief: Big toe pain

Here again it could be several things - undiagnosed fracture, subchondral fracture, tendonitis, bone spur, ingrown nail, subungual exostosis, fungal nail, spin callous, excessive pronation with pressure on the toe, etc.
An exam and xray by a podiatrist will give you the help you seek. Good luck !

There are a myriad of possibilities that your Podiatrist may have to differentiate. Even a tumor can cause pain in a big toe. X-rays/MRI's.

In brief: Time to see a doctor

A person with ongoing pain in a toe for several months should see a doctor, to figure out if there is arthritis, a bone fracture, gout, or other disorder. A primary care doctor, an orthopedic doctor, a rheumatologist, or a podiatrist, can all be helpful.
