Question regarding your toes

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has there toes affected by scleroderma, I'm not asking if you have Raynaud's in your feet. My toes well one toe is really bothering me. My toes have always crinkle over, looking weird.

Hi Sam,

 

Scleroderma can affect the toes. They are a very popular site for amputations from digital ulcers and gangrene, etc. They can also harden and curl, like when scleroderma affects the fingers (sclerodactyly).

 

I just have Raynaud's and (knock on wood) no more toe ulcers since I was diagnosed with the Raynaud's. Up until then, I didn't know what was causing them, and avoiding vasospasms and keeping my feet warm has helped enormously.

 

So, are you talking about hardening and curling, or something else?


Warm Hugs,

Shelley, my toes have always looked like they have been curved over when I am barefoot, plus I have bunions on both side of both feet. My one toe hurts really bad and when I where shoes that makes my toes lay flat it hurts them. I have no padding on both feet and my arches are gone too. So that is why I was asking if sclero effected the toes too. Thanks for the information though. Sam
