I thought cherries have purines in them and that promotes gout?
Don't know the rationale but a study from Boston University said so, 20 cherries a day help lower gout risk, and so on...
For me when a flar up occurs probably because of beer consumption Tart cheerie juice works for me. Going threw a flar up now. This time not my big toe seems its my whole dam foot cant walk hardly. I need to be better by tomorrow.
Hi Jacob, how are you doing? I live in fear of having another gout attack. I've only had 2...big toe once, and my ankle the other. I hope yours has healed.
I have had two attacks in the last month,  my whole foot , I can barely walk
Hey Kyle. Have you seen a doctor? Normally doctors would order you drugs that could treat and prevent gout attacks. Limiting alcohol and exercising regularly could also help.
Is cherry juice good for swelling in your toe
Gout occurs when there's a build-up of uric acid in the body. If the swelling is due to gout, cherry juice may help as it reduces the level of uric acid in the body.

Take Advil or similar non steroidal pain killer and to reduce inflammation.

Doctor will recommend prednisone, a steroid, great acting drug to reduce swelling.

Hope this helps
