hi there, just wondering if anyone can help? my mother's last three toes on her left foot are inflammed, purple (like bruising), itchy, and burn (especially at night, when they get warm in bed). She has had this for about a month now and doesn't seem to be getting better. And the same for her big toe on her right foot, but this has just flared up in the last two weeks. The doctors don't seem to know what it is. Today she admitted herself to hospital as the pain was so intense she couldn't take it anymore.
Anyone with answers to this unknown would be great,
Thanks, Leanne
