The sooner you get it checked the quicker you can be treated and get back to full mobility. ...Read more
Pain, swelling: And bruising after some type of "whacking" to the toe. If it hurts to press on it and to bend it also, it probably is broken.

Keep clean: Clean with mild soap and water 2 times a day. Use Bacitracin (light coat) and a band-aid. A gauze bandage wrapped around it might cushion it. Wear shoes that hurt the least.

I had a displaced fifth toe fracture 3 days ago reduced with buddy taping. I cant hang my foot down, results in severe pain. How should I walk?
Not my buddy: Since you mention displaced fracture and buddy taping, it sounds like it has already been examined, x-rayed and splinted by a pro. If not, do it. When a bone breaks blood to the bone increases, increasing the pressure. When you hang it down, the pressure increases more. That increases pain. Elevate it.

Try taking a picture of the area and compare it to another in two weeks. If there is obvious change, then an evaluation would be in order. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
