Knot on the toe with foot pain after being hit by a heavy object. What could it be?

I dropped a bag of frozen corn(approx. 2 lbs) on the top of my foot from waist high. The corner of the bag hit me direct. This hit just below the toe next to my big toe. This happened July 16th. It was very painful but could walk with a slight limp but couldn t gp up on my toes. Today (July 21st) I noticed a knot the size of a pencil eraser right on the spot it hit and my foot hurts worse. What could this be?

It seem form your problem that you have developed inflammation after the injury. Give ice compression over the affected area. Do take rest for few days or at least do not keep yourself standing for long time which can make the situation worse. You can take pain killer like Ibuprofen or paracetamol or diclofenac according to the pain severity. The swelling will take 3-4 days time to get subsided. DO not pinch or pop the area as it can lead to infection of the toe area.
