    ran over my toe, should i be worried?

    Hello everyone, like 3 days ago i ran over my big toe, i have full feeling and it hurts when i walk on it now. Its also very red on the outter edge, it almost looked like i had an ingrown toe nail and this just made it irriated, and i dno't want it to get infected, any ideas what i should do to help it go away? Thanks.

    What did you run over it with? With trauma, you would expect swelling, a full feeling and pain with walking. For this, you would ice for 48 hours, elevate the foot and take anti-inflammatory meds (such as motrin) fo the pain.
    Is there any break in the skin around the redness or the nail bed? If so, that could possibly get infected so wash it wash it well and apply an antibiotic ointment. These symptoms should get better in 3-4 days. If you notice any pus or the redness increasing, you should see a doctor to rule out any infection. If you are a diabetic, I would contact your doctor now.

    I'm not diabetic, but i did notice it getting worse then better, so i contacted t he doctor and he told me to soak it, i did, and the redness went down but its still painful if i wear a shoe, hopefully time will heal. I ran it over with my wheelchair, not my regular one which is like 27 pounds, it was an old one which is about 50lbs
