Red swollen toes

Hi everyone , i keep experiencing sore red and painful toes ( just the tips ) they sometimes crack and bleed. Can't get appointment to see gp, not even sure if need to be seen ? Anyone else experienced this before? The condition seems to calm down then flare back up again .

Hi my toes can be quite tender and if I knock them I tend to get a wound which then takes ages to heal. Probably due to the MTX. My skin is also at risk of tearing because of the Pred. At the moment I have also go neuropathy following an extended period in ICU

Does your Rheumatology have a help line. Mine does and you can speak to a nurse consultant. Alternatively ring the rheumatologist’s Secretary and ask for a tel app’t.
