Forefoot pain is discomfort or pain in the front part of the foot, including the toes, metatarsals, and ball of the foot. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including corns, calluses, bunions, and hammertoes. Symptoms of forefoot pain can include swelling, redness, and difficulty walking or moving the toes. Treatment may include wearing wider, more comfortable footwear, using padding or other support devices to reduce pressure on the toes, and taking over-the-counter pain medication. In severe cases, a doctor may recommend physical therapy or surgery.
