Possibly...: Sounds like may be fungal - if not better with trial of otc tinactin, (tolnaftate) see a physician. Other possibility may be contact dermatitis from walking barefoot into something like poison ivy. Numbness could also be result of swelling or nerve irritation from virus. Painful? Itchy?

Trauma to nerve: When you stub your toe it is actually blunt force trauma to all the tissues in toe. The injury may not be bad enough to fracture bone but it can result in contusion-a 'deep bruise' to the soft tissues-skin muscle, tendon and nerves in the toe. Unlike the other tissues, nerve healing can take months. If the nerve was not severed, as happens in cuts to toe, the numbness should resolve.

A 45-year-old female asked:
My big toe is partially numb after my sesamoidectomy 3 weeks ago. Will the numbness go away? How long does this take?

A Verified Doctor answered
Numbness: Surgery may cause tissue irritation (expected). Tissue healing involves the skin, soft tissue , and surrounding nerves. It could take 9 months for healing including the numbness (neuroma). If you can move you toes, then nerve us not damaged. Massage area it helps healing, give it time.

How do Ur shoes fit?: Are your shoes new? Or old? Do you have any other symptoms of numbness elsewhere? Pain? Does your back hurt? Have you changed your playing style, serve or playing surface? These are things to evaluate as potential causes.

Something localized: It sounds like something related to that foot.See a podiatrist. Root pain (a radiculopathy) is a possibility if other symptoms are present.

Nerve pain: Very often the nerve on the top of the foot is injured. Shoes can compress the nerve and cause. Remove all pressure and give it a few days. If it persists see your podiatrist.
