You might have dislocated or broken it. Ouch! Just in case it's not a simple break, go have it x-rayed. I think if it's dislocated, they need to put it back in place - sorry!!

Hi J.-

As a kiddo, I smashed my big toe into a cement step. IT HURT!!

My mom took me to the ER. They ex rayed...sure enough it was broken...and they merely taped it to 'next' in line!


I could have DONE that myself!

And I have...

I am a CLUTZ...and I am sure have broken other toes...I tape them...take a pain reliever...wear comfy shoes...and hobble through it!

Best Luck!

Get to an urgent care center or wherever and see a doctor and have it x-rayed. I can't believe folks are saying "just tape it yourself and go about your business," basically. Better to get a real diagnosis now, because a doctor may want to do more than tape it, and if there are complications later, the question from the doctor and your insurance company will be, "Why didn't you get this looked at when it happened?"

Nothing more painful than the broken toe. All you can do is tape it to the next to keep it steady.
If you see a RED line going up, that's when you get doc assistance.

Maybe sprained, maybe broken. Not much you can do for it except splint it to the other toe and wear comfortable roomy shoes. See your doc if it's rediculously painful and hard to walk.

Nothing can be done for a broken toe. Buddy tape it to the O. next to it.

Ruptured blood vessel? Of course most people call them bruises. :) The bad ones tend to bloom as you described.
