    I have had my bones in my toes (next to big toe) pinned a few times to straighten them when I was younger which failed to work leaving the toes still overlapping. Every year especially during the summer months I suffer with my toes constantly rubbing causing blisters. Is it possibly to get toes removed privately and still have full function ie walking running?? Rob

    I have the same problem as well

    My feet sweat a lot even without socks on an they get really red and swollen which sometimes stops me from walking around, my toes peel as a result because they crack and the dead skin peels, the side of my toe nails are yellow looking and you can pull the side of my toe an get a nail file down the side of my toes on both big toes Which results in my sock 'fluff' getting trapped down there and putting more pressure on my toes.

    I had chilblains about five years ago on my toes. But after that winter they stopped itching. My toes are still swollen and red from the chilblains, they don't itch or hurt like chilblains anymore but they look horrible. One or two of my toes are twice the size that they were before, is there anything I can do to make my toes normal size?

    My big toes are bent towards my other toes and sometimes can be quite sore when wearing shoes. I never show my feet as I find them really embarrassing, I am sick of having to hide my feet and would like to wear sandals some day. I was wondering if there was any type of surgery to straighten my toes or is there anything I can do?

    Can you help me please? I have really horrible feet. My toes are very long, my 2nd toe is bigger than the first and my 3rd is even bigger than the 2nd. I'm a 25 year old woman and never ever show my feet in public. I find that my feet pain when wearing shoes as my toes do not form the right shape for them. It's horrendous in summer as it is so hot and I have to wear shoes that cover my feet completely. Is there anything that can be done? Can this be corrected so my toes are the normal size?

    I have curled under toes from when I was born, I find that washing and drying my feet properly and applying a moisturiser such as aqueous cream or e45 can help, alternatively you could just file the hard skin away, which also seems to relieve it slightly better when accompanied with a moisturiser. I hope this helps.

    Every now and again (especially after a run) the bottom of my feet and my toes go a dark purple. Also, at different times, my toes go completely white, with no capillary refill and feel really cold. Sometimes I can help this second issue by using a vibrating massager on my thigh, but often I cannot restore blood low or heat to my toes for hours on end. I am concerned that this will eventually cause some kind of necrosis to my toes. what can I do, if anything?

    I have just turned 20 years old and since i was about 13 or so i have had a fungal nail infection on both of my big toes and also a little bit on the toes next to them too. The two big toes are yellowish in colour and look like they are growing on top of each other rather than growing up the way they are also very hard and i find it very difficult to cut them too. The toes next to the big toes are just really thick and slightly over lapping and a little bit darker too but not as bad as the big toes. I have been to the doctors a few times and one even told me that it was something that happens to some peoples nails and that i just have to deal with it basically. I am planning on going on holiday next year to spain with my daughter and fiance and would love to be able to wear flip flops and walk on the beach bare foot as the last time i was on holiday in spain i was too embarrassed to do so because of my nails. Seems like i will just have to keep on going back to the doctors and explaining everything to them and hoping someone will be able to help me

    my toe nails is completely infected - 6 out of my 10 toes have a fungus issue. I wear socks everyday and even at night - I also cover my big toes with toilet paper and cellotape (bandage like). There is constant puss and dirt driping from my toes. Any suggestions?

    Im 15 and I've had bunions since I was about 11 or 12 I would like to wear sandlas to school but I'm afraid the other kids will make fun of me. But wearing closed shoes just makes it hurt worst, bad part is you can see it through my socks. No one will give me surgery at my age but I really need it, its painful, embarrassing, and ugly. I've tried at home methods but they don't seem to work.

    I suffer from the same thing. My toes are so unsightly, I won't even let my boyfriend see my feet, it's that bad! I am 40 and seem to remember having ugly toes all of my life. I think the condition is called either hammer toe or claw toe. I dread summer, because I cannot wear pretty sandals or even flip flops. If I could afford surgery to fix my toes, I would definitely go for it.

    I get really itchy inbetween my toes, particularly at night (as someone else said above just about you're about to go to sleep!) I try to wash & dry them thoroughly but even just drying inbetween the toes starts off a major ithing/scratching session!! It's mostly between the toes (sometimes ust underneath too), not white like the pic on the site tho - Is this athlete's foot?!

    I am a elderly gent who has been suffering from fungi on my toes, especially the big toe.My Dr said there was no cure but I have used a well known mouthwash which kills bacteria and it worked for me.I treated them by soaking toes in a bowl covering the toes with Listerine and soaked for 15mins each foot. Then a few days later I repeated the process and I now have healthy nails.

The bottoms of my left and right big toes are peeling and flaky. The top of my left big toe and my right first 3 toes (right below the nail area) are red and a but swillen and itchy and they hurt. I hope i figure out what it is :(

    I have a problem with toes nais both legs, around the toes the colour changed to black up to halfway through the toe, weak nails which splits,burning and so painful,especially during cold weather and skin around the toes pills off. I have seen my GP and prescibed cream but seems not too helpful. Is there any other useful treatment or alternative so that I can wear open shoes? Please help me

    Hi, I know it's very frustrating and very sore! Mine sound very similar and it's hard when they get so bad to find something that works! I find deep heat works if they're not too bad but (I know this sounds strange) the best thing I found to work was a raw onion. Cut a piece of onion and rub it all over your toes/chilblaines, even leave it between ur toes overnight with a sock (I know it sounds gross)but there should be a big difference the next day (try it for about 3 days)! I think the bluish colour is bad circulation.It just means we have to wrap up and wear layers to look after our little tootsies :) hope this helps a little

    They get really itchy when my feet are too hot or too cold. I normally get cream for itching but then as i said my toes are blueish. They are discoloured compared to the rest of my feet. My toes look someone elses and my feet look someone elses lol theyr back again cz of the cold. Its normally in the evening when they start to itch :((

    I previously had a staff infection in my right foot and since then my foot especially in between my toes is so itchy I can't resist and have to scratch. I dry between my toes everyday but my foot gets so warm and sweaty from my work boots it doesn't seem to clear up. I've tried creams and tablets and nothing seems to be helping. In between my toes have cracked and the softer skin peels away. It also becomes really painful.

    Can you elaborate more? *What sort of work boots do you wear *Staff infection? whats that

    I had ingrown toe nails on both of my big toes. I did nothing. Both of my big toes became infected and they were disgusting. I can't actually believe I let them get that bad. Finally I went to the doctors and I got both my big toe nails removed and also the nail bed was removed so that the nails didn't grow back. My toes are very much back to normal minus my toe nails. I have read some comments on here with people with the same or similiar conditions. PLEASE GO AND SEE A DOCTOR!!!!!! I can't stress this enough. Having my toe nails removed was the best course of action. Please don't ignore any symptons. I think if I didn't do anything with my toes, my guess is I could have lost them or made myself very ill.

    Ive had a patch on my scalp for about 8 years now, and before that used to have the odd patch but would go a few months later. This patch is very stubbborn. Ive used Betacap scalp application, Betnovate Scalp application and these did nothing on the current patch, although when used years ago they did help. Nothing is shifting this patch, but what is helping emormously with the itching is COCOIS ointment (like a coal tar cream and has salicyclic acid in it). Rub it on the affected area, leave on for an hour then wash off with your regular shampoo. Easy to wash out too. It breaks down the scales, and the itching is not half as bad. Honestly recommend it. Prescribed with this my doctor gave me Diprosalic Scalp application, again the lotion contains the ingredient to break down the scaling further to use alongside the COCOIS. May sting a little though if applying straight after the COCOIS once your hair is dry! It has made a huge, huge difference to my condition and if anyone hasnt tried these ask your GP. I hate this condition and I know its not cureable , so my GP says, but if it helps with the scaling and itching its got to be worth a try.
