swollen big toe

About a month ago I dropped a metal table on my left big toe. It turned dark red and became swollen. It was only painful if I wore shoes. During the following weeks it has become consistanly painful,always swollen and very red (dark red). The weird thing is that the skin on my toe has become very thick.
I have soaked and pampered my toe to no avail.
Can you suggest a possible treatment to follow.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
