both my baby toes or little toes are paining constantly and very very badly. I’m not wearing tight shoes or sneakers in fact because of the pain I have been wearing flip flops but pain won’t go away. what is wrong with my toes.
Hello and thank you for your question.
5th toe pain is very common due to the shape of shoes which do not match the shape of the foot. In addition if you have any rotation or contracture of your 5th toe this can increase the pressure from the shoes.
What I suggest is checking out some silicone toe covers for when you need to wear closed shoes or choose shoes that are wider or softer material. If the pain persists there is a surgical procedure to correct the 5th toe contracture.
You can speak to a Podiatric Surgeon about this procecure. Average recovery time is 2 weeks.
I hope this helps!
