RED SWOLLEN PAINFUL TOES
Hello! I'm a 34 year old female in fairly good health. About a week ago i started to experience pain in my toes. I figured it was from the cold. My husband and I decided not to have the heater on this season so we can save money on our electric bill. It's not so bad since we live her in California, but it's still cold nontheless. About 2 days ago I my toes started to get red, swollen and tender. The pain increases when I apply pressure. If my feet get too warm my toes turn bright red. I am not sure what is causing this. Any suggestions?
If it is cold and possibly damp where you live then the discoloration may be due to the weather and is a harmless situation.
Having said that, the discoloration may be due to other factors, so your best bet would be to see a podiatrist and let he or she determine whether or not your discoloration needs further treatment.
