In brief: Soak. Splint

You can splint toe to adjacent toe to immobilize it and allow it to heal.
So king in warm water will help. The trauma will dissipate slowly , but you may speed up process with oral enzymes such as bromelain.

In brief: Get an xray

To be sure there is no fracture, have a doctor evaluate you and take xrays.

In brief: Toe fracture

Apply ice, use crutches, and an open toe shoe.
You may also have to see an orthopedist if it looks deformed.
