Question: What can be done with a second toe that goes over the big toe. The plastic inserts do not help, they are not strong enough. I don't want surgery.

Brief Answer:
Use sandals with toe spacers.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

*Wear sandles with a wide and deep toe box. This can often solve the problem and prevent you from needing more treatment.

* Wear sandles with Correct Toes spacers. Spacers to separate the first and second toes.
If the problem is still persistent then surgery is the only option.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
