Many different conditions can affect your toes, from common issues like bunions and hammertoes, to the uncommon ones like Freiberg’s disease. Some toe problems specifically affect the skin and nails, such as black nails, corns, calluses, nail fungus, and ingrown toenails. Sports injuries may affect your lower digits, particularly turf toe and fractures. A tailor’s bunion causes a deformity in your smallest toe, while capsulitis affects the supporting tissues around a toe joint. Multiple types of arthritis can damage these joints as well. Even Morton’s neuroma can cause nerve pain that radiates into your digits.
Any of these toe injuries can cause significant discomfort and make normal foot functions difficult. You don’t have to suffer with toe pain, however. Taking care of your toes and getting treatment for whatever condition arises helps keep your lower limbs healthy and functional.
