Just stubbed my pinky toe not even an hour ago, it hurt for about ten minutess. Now it stings really bad and is bruised blue and purple. Is that bad?.
Maybe: Try off-loading it with a stiff sandal and wrapping it next to the 4th toe (buddy splinting). Use ice and antiinflammatory medication (ibuprofen, etc). If it continues to hurt for 1-2 weeks, you may need to see a doctor, but all they'll do is what i just instructed with an xray. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I stubbed my toe ( the one next to the pinky toe ) three days ago, and it is still badly bruised. Looks purpleish red, certain areas blackish. it's no?
Buddy taping.: As long as the stubbing has not left your toe with some obscene angular deformity, either up/down or right/ left, your toe will probably do just fine with a minimal amount of help. The blood is from vessels that have obviously been injured. The key now is prevent further injury as well as stabilize the toe so healing can proceed uninterrupted. Splinting seems to work in most cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
