Re: Very sore Black and Blue toe.

I think that you should see a doctor with your toe. Black and blue and pain usually equal a broken bone. It will need to be x-rayed to make sure that all the bones are in good position. Depending on the severity, it may need to be immobilized with a cast.

Good luck!


: Last evening I stumbled and hurt my big toe on my left foot. It is very bruised and swollen and hurts a lot when I try to bend it. I can walk but I can't put much pressure on it or I go thru the roof. I don't think it is broken. I think it is severely sprained or jammed. Is there anything I can do for first aid and to help it heal. I have applied ice but it really hurts and any pressure on it is unbearable. I can't wear a shoe and even my slipper seems too tight. Help I am a klutz. I need advice. Should I see a Dr.? I know there isn't much that can be done with toes. Any suggestions.
