: I am 15 and was born with webbed toes on both feet. On my left foot my second and third toes are joined together and on my right foot the big toe and second and third toes are all joined. I get really embarrased when people stare at my toes and I hardly ever wear sandles. I have heard that its possible to have an operation to seperate webbed toes but my doctor and podiatrist arent keen and say that there could be complications, and my mother who also has webbed toes although they aren't as bad as mine says I'm being stupid. Does anyone have any experience of this or have advise to offer.
i also know exactly how you feel! i was born with an overlapping fifth toe on my left foot. my little toe lays completely over on top of the fourth toe.it looks really funny and i too was embarrassed to go barefoot for a long time.i finally got tired of hiding it and decided to even wear sandals in public! i found that most people didn't even notice it. i bet if you quit hiding your toes and wear sandals you will also find that it really doesn't matter to most people what your toes look like! you are still the same person. i wish i would have quit hiding mine when i was your age! i am now 37 and have finally stopped being so self-conscious about my toe.
