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

The skin over the bone starts getting thicker to protect the bone and the toe swells and becomes inflammed. Visit the Podiatrist ...Read more
