How to Treat Broken Toe?

Medical Treatment:
The following things can help to improve a broken toe:
  • Rest your foot and keep it raised
  • Take painkillers such as ibuprofen and paracetamol
  • Hold an ice pack or frozen peas bag wrapped in a towel on your toe every few hours for up to 20 minutes
  • Do not walk or stand for long periods
  • Wear wide, comfortable shoes with a low heel and avoid wearing tight, pointy shoes
  • Avoid playing any sports
  • Do not try and treat your child toe
  • Strap up your broken toe - place a small piece of cotton wool or gauze between your sore toe and the toe next to it, then tape them together to support the sore toe
  • Do not strap up your toe when it is pointing out at an odd angle or you have hurt your big toe - get medical advice
  • You should have an urgent treatment if the bone is sticking out of your toe, or the toe is pointing out at an odd angle, or have severe pain, or it is your big toe
