my purple toe

8 posts in this topic

I woke up with a purple, bruised toe. It is no big deal...but could this be sclero related or did I just tweak it walking and not know it? It hurts to the point that it almost itches. I just worry because I want to make sure it's not some weird sclero issue.

 

Thanks,

Tangelo

Hey Tang,

With all you packing and moving do you think you may have bumped the toe without knowing. I do tend to bruise easier and bigger now. A little bump looks like I got punched. Other than that I don't know why your toe would be purple and tender. I'm assuming it's not cold and it's not a Raynaud's thing. Hopefully it's warm enough where you are now to go open toed so it won't be so sore.

 

Maybe others have experienced the same thing.

 

Hugs to you Darlin'

Hey Tange!

 

Good to see you post again - sorry it's because of an owie toe. I have owie toes too. My 2 big toes tend toward ingrown toenails - ouch! But lately my pinky toe has been very painful and tender too - not ingrown and not red or swollen just painful.

 

Don't know what to say about yours - just wanted to say mine hurt too and I have wondered if it was sclero or not as well - as I do with most every little thing!

 

Take care of it. A warm soak in epsom salts might help ease the pain or I have used an ointment with lidocaine in it which helped a lot. I can PM you the brand if you want.


Take care,

Barefut

Hi Tangelo,

Do you think you have been bitten by something with that toe being itchy.?

 

Take care

Hi Ladies!

I don't post often but I do read and take note of everyone's issus. We have so many new people too, which is great (in a way). I may not reply but I do empathize deeply ;) . I am so busy now that I live in the town that I grew up in and have a lot of family here. I feel silly posting about a toe, but you just never know.

 

I don't think I was bitten. It's definitely bruised. I probably just hurt it walking. I've been walking two or three miles a day. As long as I didn't get an influx of you all telling me it was sclero related, I am not worried.

 

Janey poo, my Raynauds feels worse in Fayetteville and it's a lot warmer. I think it may be the humidity here. Breathing better, for sure.

 

I will say that now that I've started walking regularly, I am always sore. I cannot believe merely walking can make a body hurt so much. Surely this is sclero related :).

 

I hope everyone has a terrific day. It's raining here in Fayetteville, but it's been in the 70s so I won't complain.

A rainy day here and there is always fun!

 

Thinking of you all,

Jen

Hi Jen,

 

I wouldn't take any chances, why not get it looked at? It could be sclero related. Anything purple/blue could be the beginnings of gangrene. Why take a chance? When I got gangrene, the darkness came up literally overnight. Good luck,

Karen

Hi Jen!

 

It's so easy to bump a toe... busy as you've been... and like Janey mentioned... not even think about it... Been there, done that!

 

I'm glad you're breathing easier! The trade-offs, though.. with your body being more sore when you take walks. Still good for you...."they" say!lol

 

I'm just glad you're around family... as long as that's the case... we can share ya ;)

Lovin' Hugs, Susie

Hey Jen:

 

Miss talking with you! Update on Oliver, he chased the neighbors cat in my yard, dug a hole and went after her. Thank goodness my neighbor (who owns the cat) caught him and brought him home. My other neighbor just put all cinder blocks around the fence now to keep the little imp inside.

 

Back to the toe Jen, if it continues to bother you, just for safety's sake, get it checked out. My visit yesterday was a very good report and doctor said if it keeps up, I may not need the skin graft.

 

Miss you girl....keep in touch!
