What is the difference in treatment of a broken or sprained little toe?

Toe injury

Walking
Treatment of both are essentially the same. You may "buddy" tape your small toe with the adjacent toe which will act as a splint. Also, it would be beneficial to wear a stiff/supportive-soled shoe to protect from too much motion while walking. Fractures will heal within 3-4 weeks generally and most likely sooner for a sprain.

Dr. Allen Seely answered:

If I've broken my toe what are signs that its a more serious break that needs more than home treatment?

NEEDS TO BE SEEN

An xray will be able to tell 'the seriousness of the fracture' such as displacement or comminution. Displacement is when the bones are 'shifted' and less likely to heal. Communition is when there are 'EXTRA fragments' You are not be able to tell how serious a fracture is by looking on the outside, sorry. Hope you are better soon!

Treatment for green toe infection?

See podiatrist

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Do you mean the nail is green? This is likely fungus. If there is green drainage or pus this could be a pseudomonas infection that would require an antibiotic.

Dr. David Laha answered:

What is the treatment for toe fracture?

Usually splinting

Toe_fracture
Most toe fractures, if in good alignment, will respond well to splinting. Taping the fractured toe to the adjacent toe(s) for several weeks(3-6) along with a good, stiff shoe or surgical shoe is usually adequate. If concerns, have it evaluated. Not all fracture respond with simple treatment. If misalignment or continued pain, have an examination. Dr L
