Question
Posted by: merle | 2010-11-04

thick toes

My toes feel " thick"  and puffy. They do also look a bit puffy. There is no puffiness elsewhere on my foot and nothing around the ankles either. I am not diabetic. What can be the cause?

Hallo Merle
Swollen toes could be caused by inflammation of the joints, infection of the skin between the toes, allergies (contact dermatitis) due to chemicals in leather in shoes. If it is just the one foot I think you should let your doctor examine the area to see what the possible cause is.
