Hi Cassie17,

Purple toe syndrome is a rare complication of warfarin treatment. If it develops it usually is with in the first couple of months of taking warfarin.

If you google it you should find some information and take it to your doctor. Depending on why he is on warfarin there may be alternatives he can take.

I used to get real cold feet and the tips of my toes would turn ghost blue/purplish, my dr said it was raynauds.
