It is possible that you have a fracture on one of your toes or have sprained a tendon - this will cause the inflammation to continue for a long time. pressure by the inflammation on nerves will cause the burning sensation.

You neeed to consult a orthopedist for an examination and an xray for an accurate diagnosis and treatment. Till you manage to do so, please take the following steps:

- Apply an ice pack on it for 10 minutes every 4 hours.

- Rest the leg, keeping it elevated as far as possible.

- Wrap an elastic bandage firmly around the foot and the toes. This will decrease movement and help the sprain or fracture to heal faster.

- Take Motrin and Aleve 500mg twice a day after food to decrease the pain and inflammation..


I hope this helps.
