Dark color at end of left toe, no pain. Remedy?

Yeas The end of my left toe is dark and doesn't hurt. I feel the tissue is prob dying or dead. Does this need to amputated ? And I have been reading on certain vitamins you can take to help neuropathy, like Lipoic acid and the B vitamins, and this stuff called Neuropathy Formula Support. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Thanks for the query

sometimes black toe even happens due to mild repeated trauma,

This can be even with trauma with shoe.

As you dont have pain or any other symptoms,

There is nothing much to worry.

Just apply some keratolytic cream like salicylic cream.

There wont be need of amputation.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Wishing you good health.

Thank you
