Hello June and Carole
It starts off with curly toes and then develops into hammer toe.
Saw GP referred me to Podiatrist who was helpful and put some blue putty under my toes which set like a mould after 5 minutes and said that should help.
Well it did not.
Bought off Amazon a leather Chamois leather thing which fitted under my 3rd toe which was really good short term 6 months, you can find it under hammer toe there a thousand of gadgets but it is there £4.69
Went back to GP and asked for surgery for hammer toe, there are lots of " you tube clips showing you the procedure looks frightening but I had it done at the local hospital on my right foot under general anaesthetic.
They break all 4 little toes and straighten and insert steel rod in each while they heal, took 8 weeks and then pull out rods and you have nice toes.
That was 3 years ago
