Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
A toe pain with numbness and dark skin suggests an infection or decreased blood supply in the area. This can be due to a gangrene also. This needs a direct examination and proper dressing and antibiotics with other prescription medicines for an improvement.
Do consult an orthopedician and try to keep the toe warm till then.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
