Hi Ummifathimah.. Thank you for the questions given.
Injury to the foot in the form of a hard impact can result in:
Swelling, redness, and pain -- are common, swelling and pain occur due to a hard impact on the surrounding tissue as well, from the skin, muscles, to the bones Wounds -- if there is an open wound it can affect nerves and blood vessels , then after the wound is cleaned, stitches can be done, but the bullae are only abrasions, so the wound is cleaned and treated regularly so the wound will improve. Fractures -- you can suspect that there is a fracture in the toe if the pain is intense, the finger can't be moved, there are changes the shape of the finger or looks bent Complaints of a small lump on your mother's toe can be a swelling that is still there or because of a fracture. Fracture if there are signs as mentioned. To be sure of this, you should check your mother to the doctor. The doctor will perform a physical examination and may be followed by an X-ray to confirm the diagnosis.
Meanwhile, what can be done: keep the feet clean, avoid holding or massaging the swollen and injured parts, consume lots of protein to speed up the wound healing process, treat the wound every 1-2 days
Hope it is useful
