A heavy object fell on my toe and there is a painful blood blister. What can I do to relieve pain or make the blister go away?

ICE: Place ice on area, rest, elevate and take nsaid. Blister will not go away, you injured yourself, so swelling is the bodies first response. If blister and pain increases, then seek medical care. If this is not an option, clean area with alochol, place a needle over a match for 60 seconds, then pop blister. Slowly drain blood, apply perioxide or alochol, apply a bacterial ointment and cover. ...Read more

Wooden frame fell on my foot. I am unable to put much weight on my foot and it hurts to bend my toes up and down. It's also very painful to touch.

Damage control.: The immediate concern is to minimize the swelling and pain. Use the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice, mild Compression and Elevation. It may be necessary to have the foot x-rayed to see if any fracturing has occurred. To remove all doubt, have your foot evaluated by a specialist. Ultimately, there may be a cast boot in play here. ...Read more

I was moving furniture in my home and a heavy bed (over 300lbs) fell on my great toe. I can bend the toe and walk but it's throbing and tingly.

It needs rest: Some big toe fractures can cause some problems when it comes to healing. Since it is so important in propelling you in your gait, the big toe does a lot of work, it needs to rest to heal. Most of the time a surgical sandal is dispensed, even if it is a bruise or a sprain, so as to limit motion. Taping also helps. If it is not improving, then you should get some medical attention. ...Read more

I dropped something heavy on my toe nail. The nail fell off and a new nail started growing into the tip of my nail bed. It hurts. What should I do?

I dropped something heavy on my toe nail. The nail fell off and a new nail started growing into the tip of my nail bed. It hurts. What should I do?

Callus: The tip of the nail bed can sometime have a callus that interrupts the path of the nail growth. It may be prudent to trim away at the callus at the tip of the nail bed. However if the nail is now growing directly toward the base of the nail bed, then you may need to see your local podiatrist for specific treatment options. ...Read more

Unlikely: It's doubtful stubbing your toe would cause a knee injury unless the leg was moving quite fast and stopped abruptly. More likely you have some arthritis in the knee which might be aggravated by altered gait from the foot injury. ...Read more

A heavy bowl fell on my big toe, my toe nail is blue n green and throbbing, have I broke my toe?

No: Unless the injury is very severe the more common cause would be subungual hematoma. That is blood under the nail plate and is very painful. Go to an urgent care center or emergency room. The doctor can use electro cautery to make holes in the nail plate and express the blood out giving immediate relief. ...Read more

Nail procedure: If the toenail is painful when you apply pressure then you need to have the pressure relieved to release the blood underneath the nail plate. It's possible to also have a toe fracture following such a traumatic event. See a podiatrist for a x-ray and possible nail procedure. ...Read more

Get seen again.: If your pain is getting worse, rather than getting better, you should be checked again. Sometimes a fracture won't show up on x-rays for 7 days. Also, some severe sprains need more aggressive treatment. See your primary care doc, and orthopedist, or a podiatrist. ...Read more

Varies: If you are asking whether or not you should be seen, it is hard to answer without more info. If you can bear weight on the foot and the pain is minimal, it is likely reasonably safe to give it a few days to see how it does. If any question, I would not hesitate to be seen to make sure you did not sustain a fracture. ...Read more
