Traumatic injury: First things first! ice and elevate. Call a local podiatrist in your area and try to get in for an evaluation today or tomorrow for a possible fracture. You at a minimum need a foot x-ray to determine if you fractured the toe. Otherwise, it is a contusion (bruise) and icing and elevating it will start the process.

Was there an injury?: That is one way to develop black and blue. It also can be from a tight shoe or a circulatory dosorder. Is it painful.? Is the skin excessively cold or even hot. These all play into the possibilities. If this persists for more than a few days, or is swollen or cold, see a physician immediately. Try elevating foot.
