Possible Broken Big Toe-1
Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Looking to your description an d photograph it seems to be having undisplaced fracture of great toe. However it can be clear only after getting its x ray. Treatment is however similar whether it got sprain or undisplaced fracture. It's treatment consist of splinting of injured part (rest to part), elevation and analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Vitamin B and C is helpful in recovery. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health. Take care.
