Curly Toes is a common condition that is usually present at birth, but becomes more obvious during childhood. It tends to occur in the third, fourth or fifth toe of one or both feet.
Because the tendons that flex the toe are too tight, it pulls the toe underneath the next toe and so the toe curls towards the underside of the foot.

If your child has a problem which does not improve as you would expect with self-care, you should contact a healthcare professional for advice. This may be your GP, Pharmacist, NHS Podiatry Service or a Private Podiatrist.
Please make sure your podiatrist is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and look out for the letters HCPC after their name.
