About Common Toe Conditions and Injuries


An inherited muscle imbalance, long toes or too-short shoes can make smaller toes buckle. Corns form when these toes rub against the tops of shoes.

Square, open toed, or prescription shoes may increase comfort. If corns keep growing back and are painful, surgery may be advised

Ingrown Toenails
This painful condition results when the nail grows into the skin. If not treated it will become infected

Improper nail trimming, fungal nails and/or other nail growth abnormalities

If the nail has simply been cut incorrectly, the podiatrist can remove the infected portion (also known as Paronychia). For a recurring problem, the corner of the nail-or, in some case, the entire nail-may be removed. A normal nail will grow in. Fungus nails have oral and topical treatments available
