Recommend treatment for toe injury

Hi, my 2 year old stubbed her big toe on Monday and it immediately went black under the nail bed. It xrayed ok. 2 days later it was very red so the pressure was relieved with a sterile scaple. Since then it is now very red and has lifted once through play which was painful. Should I take her to the weekend doctor or can I get something from the pharmacy?
