HelloCustomer my name is Melissa. Broken toes are really painful, but not a whole lot you can do. You can get some heavy bandage tape, and tape it to the toe next to it, to splint it. Apply ice 15-20 min, 3-4 times a day, and take pain relievers such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen to relieve inflammation, Tylenol if you are sensitive to the anti-inflammatories. Stay off it as much as possible, and elevate your foot. I hope this answer has been helpful to you . If you are satisfied with my answer, please click the green accept answer button.
