Re: Painful, Swollen Big Toe

Each repeated attack can take it's toll on the joint. That is why it is called a chemical arthritis. I recommend getting this x-rayed. You need to discuss the possibility of gout either with your family doctor, internist of podiatrist. Allopurinol is the medication that is usually used to treat gout.

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.
