How can a painful callus on the toe be treated?
Based on the given information it could be due to elevated uric acid levels.
Hello and welcome,
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. If at all you have pain in other joints as well, with the inclusion of morning stiffness especially in your hands, wrists, etc; this could be age-related changes pointing towards arthritis.
But if the pain is limited to just your second toe on one foot then this could be related to a condition caused by elevated uric acid levels which are due diet-related (consumption of foods and beverages prone to cause high uric acid level in the body i.e. alcohol, seafood, turkey, veal, bacon, liver, etc). I would recommend an X-ray of the affected region along with blood investigations including your serum uric acid levels, ESR, and CRP levels for further evaluation.
I hope this helps.
