In brief: Elevate or doc now

If your toes are purple, it may be from swelling.
Elevate your feet above heart level for an hour or so. If they are still just as purple go to the ER. Or if they are purple and you have no feeling in them or they tingle or begin to hurt more, get seen right away. Where was your sunscreen??????
