Hammertoes are no fun; but then again, what kind of foot ailment is? Thankfully, there is hope for healing hammertoes. Sometimes individuals that suffer from hammertoes may place padding in their shoes under the ball of their foot or between their toes. While this may provide temporary relief from the intense pain resulting from a deformed toe, it has no bearing on the realignment of the toe itself.
Many times people try to treat their ailments, such as hammertoes, by using topical creams and lotions. While doing so may help to dissipate some of the redness and inflammation associated with the condition, it only helps to alleviate symptoms, while never addressing the root cause of the problem. It is important to sit down with a podiatrist and discover the root cause of your hammertoes.
