Toe Pain


The onset of toe pain can happen gradually over a period of time, or it may come on severely and all of a sudden. The spectrum of discomfort when it comes to toe pain can range from a pins-and-needle sensation all the way up to a burning or throbbing situation.


Toe pain can be severely uncomfortable all the way to the excruciatingly unbearable. The most common causes of toe pain include:

Ingrown toenails

This is a condition when the outside of the toenail, usually the big toe grows into the flesh of the toe. This can be treated by with treatment by a Podiatrist.


Which are thickened layers of skin which are caused by excess friction. Calluses develop not necessarily because of any underlying conditions but can be due to wearing improper shoes or footwear, or too much friction on a certain part of the foot. Callus can be very concentrated leading to a painful lesion called a corn


This is a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe at the joint. Conditions such as arthritis, poor foot posture and inappropriate shoes may contribute to bunions.


The road to toe pain relief can be a short or not-so-short one, depending on the severity of the injury.
