Yes: Any injury that involves a deep cut has the potential for long term scarring or damage to tendons, blood vessels or nerves. This is particularly true at the level of the toes where those structures are very close to the skin. Your doctor should have checked the feeling and circulation of the toes on initial presentation. If they were intact then, long term injury is less likely. ...Read more

May not matter: It probably doesn't matter, assuming the toe is not deformed. Treatment for a bad bruise or an undisplaced fracture would be the same, that is, symptomatic treatment to control pain. The only way to tell if it is fractured would be to get an x-ray. Just use some nsaids and wear a comfortable shoe or sandal that doesn't put pressure on your toe. ...Read more
