Have swollen foot, grey green with red blotches, after fall, slowly subsiding. Recommendations?

Hello, I tripped and landed on he left side of my left foot, middle left area. My foot became swollen in that area, light grayish green color, with dark red blotches below my third through fifth toes kind of in a thick line. Oddly, there is a small dark spot directly on the ottom, center area of my foot too? It has been 3 days and the pain is slowly going away. It is getting easier to walk too. What would you recommend? What do you think happened?

Hello ,

I have studied your case.

I will advise you to get Xray done ,
there can be metatarsal fractue or sprain.
Take rest , keep your foot clean and watch for signs of inflammation.

You can start analgesic and anti inflammatory.
Take vitaminD with calcium
do hot and cold fomentation
Apply crepe bandage.
it will take around 2 -3 weeks more to heal completely

Take care
