Swollen Little Toe After Being Run Over By A Car?
Evening,rnI’m 23 years old Gina.rnDoc, my toe this morning was accidentally run over by a car while walking. After the incident, I took off my shoes, it turned out that my pinky was swollen and I spontaneously looked for ice cubes to apply a compress. It’s a bit late, the pain is no longer painful.rnIs that all right? Doesn’t it lead to serious things later? Is it necessary to check further?rnrnThank you
When you experience trauma in the form of a toe being run over by a car tire, the trauma that occurs is in the form of pressure and heavy loads that last a short time. If the position of your fingers is not bent and using protection (such as shoes), then the side effects will be less.
Next with the swelling that occurs, you can try moving your toes lightly or with slow finger movements. If you can move your fingers passively or actively, chances are your finger bones are not at risk of breaking, but there is inflammation of the surrounding muscle tissue or skin.
However, all of this you need to make sure by direct examination to your family doctor or your bone specialist for examination and evaluation. The doctor can plan an examination and evaluation related to this complaint, X-ray examination may be done to confirm it.
Treatment will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.
