Swelling with raised, flesh colored circular bump on the toe after jamming it. Taken meloxicam, vicodin. Cause?

I jammed my 3rd toe very hard on the coffee table about a week ago. My toe is now pointing to the right, and is swollen. The area surrounding the toe is inflamed and has a raised circular tissue just at the base of the toe. I ve been taking meloxicam and vicodin , and havn t been able to stay off of my feet as much as I should. The area of concern is the raised, flesh colored circular bump. Any ideas?

Hello and welcome to HCM
I am General Physician and read your mail in detail. As you have complaints of inflammation and redness at the site of injury, It seems to be fracture or dislocation at the site. Get your X-ray done and consult your orthopedician nearby you.
If you have no fever and no local area temperature at site raised than only immobilized the site by any support and than consult your doctor. If you have fever than take a antibiotic course by consulting your doctor ASAP. It may lead to infection at that site.
Best wishes
