Thanks for your question.
How did it happen you know?
he pushes carts at walmart and wears steal toe boots I read that maybe it was the boots?
There is a risk of infection on the swollen toe.
The swelling is likely from the accumulated blood and fluid from the injury.
It is better to see his doctor or go to the nearest urgent care for a clinical evaluation.
the swollen can be drained if there is accumulated blood for relief of pain and swelling.
Antibiotic course may be required if there is suspicion of infection.
The swelling should subside over the time.
He can take ibuprofen for pain.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX thinking he may have to go to urgent care for antibiotics but wanted to check first. Awesome service Thank you again!
