I had a hangnail on 1 toe, I don’t remember what on other toe…. I now have red sores on each toe, they are not open but hurt- whether I touch them or not, throb at times. Ive been dealing with it for 3-4 weeks. I’ve moved- so haven’t established a dr. Do I go to a family dr? Podiatrist? Or ??? I’m to point of tears- so I know I need to go.
I’m sorry you are in such discomfort. I would advise first establishing yourself with a primary physician. You may not be able to get an appointment with a rheumatologist or podiatrist unless you have a primary doctor.
Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
I get those on my hands and my feet from time to time. In my case, I believe they are chilblains. No cure, just time. On my hands, they are tender, red and swollen. When my hands get too hot, they throb, itch and hurt. When they heal, and the swelling subsides, they sometimes crack. I live in Colorado, so the dryness can’t help!
