Dermatologist 's  Response

Due to pressure trauma ,you might have developed hematoma on toe and web.

There may be mild collection of blood and clotted underneath the skin,which lead to swelling and itching.

Do not worry, do cold compresses.. Which may reduce swelling and itching.

Take vitamin C and K orally, take anti inflammatory drugs.
If needed , antibiotics may be taken to prevent infection.
Itching may be relieved by antihistaminics.

Apply thrombophob oint...on swelling .

You may feel better.

Still, you consult either dermatologist or surgeon.
