Suggest remedy for injury in big toes

I have an injury to both of my big toes from a few months ago after a street basket ball game where i bruised my toenails. The bruise to my left toe is far more sever than the one to my right. At first the pain was excruciating but has since subsided. The bruise to my big toes are still there. Especially the left toenail. Seems to be starting to try to detatch. Is there anything I can do?

Hi,

Get your X-ray done to know the exact status of fracture, visit nearby orthopedician. Apply ice pack, Diclofenac gel, and take over the counter painkillers.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Jaideep Gaver, Orthopedic Surgeon
