How to obtain relief from the stinging pain caused by injury in the feet?

I jammed my big toe 2 months ago. X-rays of toe showed no fracture. I can walk without limping most of the time but my toe still swells and I frequently get a pain that builds in it. Also I get a painful popping sensation in the ball of my foot. Last Sunday I stepped on a garden tool and got a small puncture in the bottom of the same foot. I cleaned it well and have kept it bandaged and clean. Tonight I am feeling stinging in that puncture area. No redness or fever in that area. Yes I am a clutz but wondering what I should do now?

You may be developed local site infection or cellulitis or lymphedema due to fracture. Also chance that you may develop pulp space in the toe infection. You have to take rest, elevate the leg, use antibiotics and pain killer medication. If symptoms not improved please consult your orthopedics he will examine and if need he may do wire fixation of your phalanx.

I dropped something on my foot a couple of weeks ago. It was very bruised & swollen. The bruising has more or less gone & most of the swelling but I have been left with a small lump on the top of my foot. It was painful but over the last few days less so. Will this just go away on its own?

I was doing a jazz dance and had a partner thing to do where my partner squatted down, I stepped on his thighs and then would jump off. We did it a few times and I was comfortable with it but one time my feet slipped and my right foot caught in his arm. This caused me to fall and land on my right lower back and elbow. I have been icing it for almost a week and taken a few pain relievers. Is there anything else I should be doing to make a quick recovery?
