Do I have traumatic toe injuries or can this be something else?

Hi. I had one toe run over by a heavy baby stroller, (the right big toe) . However, in the past few days I have developed blood under the left big toe nail too. The traumatic injury was about 9 days ago and the other tow started hurting about 3 days ago.

Could these be just traumatic injuries or possibly something else? Luckily I have some time off to heal, but if it needs intervention , better now that later, as I go to (—–) January 7th.

  1. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    The appearance looks like traumatic injury only..
    You can soak your feet in Epsom salt water solution in warm water..
    Do alternate warm and cool compresses..
    Avoid wearing tight shoes..
    Wear proper fitting footwear and avoid moving barefoot to reduce the risk of injuring again..
    If there is no improvement in another one week consult an Emergency room and get evaluated.


  2. HI.This seems like a traumatic injury resulting in collection of blood under the nails.You can try doing warm compresses to relieve pain.Take an over the counter painkiller for pain.Keep it elevated whenever possible.Wear loose footwear.If there is no improvement in next few days please see a physician. Best Wishes!
