Both my second toes are crooked. I don't know how long I've had this condition. It has been a very long time. It's starting to affect other toes. I've uploaded a picture here: 5538lh7.jpg
In case the image above doesn't work: cyon1/IMG_5538.jpg
I'm not sure what I should do.
Thanks in advance for you help!

According to the picture you’ve sent me, it is likely you have valgus deviation of the distal phalange of the second toe. This condition can be congenital or acquired. An X-ray image can be requested to confirm the diagnosis. You may want to consult an orthopedist about your condition.
