The other day while wearing a pair of shoes, I noticed my feet were hurting. So when I got home and took off the shoes my big toes and pinky toes were sore.... and now I noticed that the two pinky toes are slightly red.... with maybe a blister or corn on the corner. What can I do to speed up the healing process and how long does it usually take to heal and what can I do or apply to it. Is this something I should worry about, of will it get better eventually.
sounds like your shoes were tight or narrow and caused increased rubbing/pressure to the toes.
wear an open toe shoe to keep the pressure off and apply neosporin to them to keep them from getting infected. it may take days to weeks for them to heal (it depends on your age, medical problems: diabetes, circulation status).
stay away from these shoes or similar types to prevent recurrence.
