Elevate or doc now: If your toes are purple, it may be from swelling. Elevate your feet above heart level for an hour or so. If they are still just as purple go to the ER. Or if they are purple and you have no feeling in them or they tingle or begin to hurt more, get seen right away. Where was your sunscreen??????

Sounds reasonable. : Keep wrapping. Sounds like you do have second degree burns of your feet. I would anticipate with wrapping the toes should improve in 7 to 10 days.
