Welcome to HCM

Inflammation and swelling that you are complaining are due to fluid/ blood in the wounded toe.

You can take analgesics and antibiotics like ampilox (500mg) to reduce inflammation and swelling, application of ointment ( apply a thick film ) containing heparin benzyl nicotinate, eg thrombophob will help to improve blood supply and reduce the bruise. It should get well in 2-3 days.

However, if it still persists get clinically examined by a physician. You may have to undergo minor surgery, drainage depending upon the ailment detected in the toe. It is always better to take medications after clinical examination and prescription of a doctor, take care.
