Goll Darn-it.: Swelling, pain and bruising are certainly classic signs of sizable trauma to the toe. Immediate care should include elevating the foot, applying ice to the toe and staying off of it as much as possible. The question of a fracture can be answered soon enough, the main thing now is to minimize swelling and pain. Stabilizing the toe by splinting it to the adjacent one will help. An x-ray will find FX ...Read more

My pinky on my right foot is black and blue. The entire toe! It does not hurt and I can't recall hitting it. It is swollen too.

My pinky on my right foot is black and blue. The entire toe! It does not hurt and I can't recall hitting it. It is swollen too.

A BAD SIGN: Sorry, while I cannot say for certain without seeing it. Would certainly suspect it is GANGRENE that will cause significant risk of loss of limb if not treated (probably loss of some of the toe/foot no matter what but treatment has got to be better than not treatment). ...Read more

Swollen upper eyelid that's painful also seeing black spots and feel very tired and irritable.

Need evaluation.: A painful swollen upper eyelid is likely a chalazion or stye. First line treatment is to apply warm compresses to the eyelid for 5-10 minutes several times a day. However, new spots(floaters) in the vision should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist to rule out any retinal tears or holes. ...Read more

I jammed my toe in tight shoes a few days ago. It's all black and blue under the nail and a bit swollen. I can walk on it ok. Do I need med. attn.?

I jammed my toe in tight shoes a few days ago.  It's all black and blue under the nail and a bit swollen.  I can walk on it ok.  Do I need med. attn.?

Probably not: If there is not a significant amount of pain associated with your injury, there is not much medically that can be done. When blood collections under a nail are painful, a hole is burned into the nail to reduce the pressure. Significant nailbed injuries often result in the nail peeling off and some people opt to have it removed to prevent snagging on socks, etc. ...Read more

My nephew got hit in the forehead with a knob of the door, few days later it's still very swollen and still black and blue, when should you worry ?

Forehead injury fore: The bruising and swelling are not the concern. The forehead has a lot of blood vessels (very vascular) and small injuries can make big marks. At the beginning after the injury, it is important to watch for dizziness, vomiting, confusion and other signs of concussion. I hope this helps. ...Read more

I twisted my ankle. On the 1st day, I didn't work. After that, I did. I hiked n retwisted. Now its been swollen for over a week and black n blue. Could it be broke?

I twisted my ankle. On the 1st day, I didn't work. After that, I did. I hiked n retwisted. Now its been swollen for over a week and black n blue. Could it be broke?

Possibly however: The increased bruising may mean more damage whether it is soft tissue or bone. Generally if you can walk and apply full weight on the ankle than it probably is not broken however avulsion fractures of the distal fibula can occur which can complicate things. Best to see a specialist for x-rays when in doubt. ...Read more
