Why is my fourth toe swollen and reddish? It did not get hit, bit, bent, scratched or such. It is sore. Could it be gout?

In brief: See a rheumatologist

There are several possible causes.
You should see a rheumatologist. Problems such as gout are unlikely in this area. Two possible causes are psoriatic arthritis and reiter's syndrome.
