big toe pain/possible nail loss after race

I recently walked a half-marathon, and apparently my shoes were too small. My big toes are purple and extremely sore. I expect to lose at least one toenail. The pain is getting worse instead of better. (It has been four days since the race.) Should I be doing anything to treat them? I've been wearing sandals because it is too painful to put on any other shoes. Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated.

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
