What would cause my big toe to become sore and have redness around the toenail? Don`t remember hitting it on anything!

Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or dispense medical advice on line. A number of different conditions might cause the synptoms you are experiencing. But because redness sometimes is an indication of infection, the best thing you can do is to consult with your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine what is causing the redness and soreness and recommend appropriate treatment. We hope you will do this soon, and that your condition will quickly be resolved.
