A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I have seen the image you shared and I will request you to visit your physician immediately for further treatment.
The little toe looks swollen and severely inflamed, signs of a fracture.
You need to confirm with an x-ray and proceed with treatment based on your physician's guidelines.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
