Why Do I Have Toe Pain?

Toe pain can be an uncomfortable sensation. It may affect the ability to walk and can cause difficulty in completing daily activities. The medical term for a burning feeling in the toes is referred to as paresthesia. Toe pain can be chronic or sporadic, and this may be contingent of the origin of pain or why your toe is hurting. It can be caused by several reasons including the development of a bunion, or if there are existing calluses, corns, or sores on the toes. Additionally, hammertoe may be a common source of toe pain and this may be the result of genetic factors, or possibly from wearing shoes that do not have adequate room for the toes to move freely in. If you have toe pain it is strongly suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can effectively diagnose your toe pain and help you with proper treatment techniques.
