Why does my big toe hurt underneath the nail bed?
Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or provide treatment recommendations on line. The most practical thing for you to do is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine what has happened that might be causing your pain, and based on the diagnosis, can recommend what treatement, if any, might be appropriate. The most likely scenario is that you have injured the toe somehow, but it is important that a medical professional make that determination, or perhaps conclude that the pain is due to another condition. In any case, we hope you will consult a medical professional, and that you will soon be rid of the pain in your big toe.
