I have 2 toes on my left foot that swell up and cause me pain to walk and they cannot be touched much from the pain. Why is this happening? Is it a foot related issue or a health issue?

Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does not diagnose or recommend medical treatments on line. We would advise you to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can determine the reason for the pain and swelling, and then recommend appropriate treatment. We would suggest that you do this as quickly as you can because this condition is affecting your mobility. Whether it is strictly a foot condition or a larger systemic condition, your medical professional can make good recommendations to help you address it, and so it is important to get a diagnosis on the nature and source of the pain. We hope you will visit a health care professional, and that your pain and swelling will soon be under control.
