Re: Bruised nail - big toe

I searched the web for more info: the problem is caused (like you thought) from wearing shoes too small, and from the toe/toenail "banging into" the inside front tip of the shoe. Marathon runners get this alot. Supposedly the bruise/blood under the toenail will make the nail fall off, but another will grow back (taking a year to complete).

That's all I could find. It doesn't seem as serious as I first thought, so I'm not as worried.

By the way: I probably never would have responded back... but the part about your Doc Martens made me want to help! I still can't wear my Docs because of the tenderness of my toenails. My Skechers boots are big enough though!

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
