My husband is a roofer his big toe under pounds of shingles, was pushed backwards, is very tender, black and blue, not broken what can stop the pain?

Rice it.: Check that he can still move his toe. There is probably some extensive soft tissue injury to the bottom of the toe. You need to use the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. The idea is to stop or slow the swelling. The ice and elevation will help. Try some OTC pain relievers to help. See a specialist if the condition does not improve or if he is unable to flex his big toe. ...Read more
