I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have a toddler (2.5 yrs old) that has developed either a Hammer toe or claw toe on his RIGHT foot, 2nd toe (next to big toe) - I think from my research. We think that it may have developed over this past year to relieve pressure because he was getting big toe ingrown toenails a lot. Tried finding a pediatric podiatrist to look at it however, no luck. So found a local one that only seemed to traumatize him when he cut out one of the ingrown nails. I am now looking for some things I can do on my own to try and remedy and correct his toe so it doesn't get worse as he gets older….while his bones are super soft and still grown. I went to a site called PEDIFIX and found a bunch of products you can use but they all seem to be for adults … read more
