Symptoms of Hammertoe

Symptoms of hammertoe may include:

  • Difficulty moving the toe that worsens over time;
  • Pain, especially when walking or wearing shoes;

A corn may form on the top of the toe, and a callus may form underneath or at the tip of the toe and on the bottom (plantar) foot surface at the toe's metatarsophalangeal joint as these areas are subjected to pressure or rubbing from footwear.
