A toe injury which has a snapped nail.

Patient: Hello, I recently sustained an injury in my foot yesterday while playing football. I had been kicked in the foot and it has bruised my big toe and also on the neighbouring toe. The pain hurts and my nail has been snapped in half as well as me not having the ability to fully move my big toe, there is a white gradient appearing also, I do not know whether this is because I have had my foot elevated for hours and the bloody has rushed away? What is your insight, is there an infection? Would it be broken and what should I do?

 

 

Symptoms: Throbbing in toe
