Re: swollen toes

Without examining you, I can not say for sure. Gout is not likely to present in a little toe or as itchy red bumps. It also is much more common in men than women.

There is the possibility it is a fungal infection, eczema, or even bacterial infection. For a better ide, make an appointment with a podiatrist or dermatologist.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
