Thanks for posting your query

For broken toe you need immobilization in form of buddy strapping.Strapping of broken toe with adjecent toe.

If fracture is in place it will unite with strpping and rest.If it is displaced it might need surgical intervention.

You can take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation.Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Hope this will helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
