Should there be numbing and swelling in foot and toes days after injury?

Sometimes it is a couple days after. Other times it can be right away. It sort of depends how it happened like if you were playing football and someone landed on your foot. That is an example of swelling and numbing. If you were to just fall, then that is an example of swelling and numbing after injury. It depends how hard you fell. If you fell quick and sturdy, it would numb and swell and that means you probably broke your toe(s) or your foot or feet. If someone landed on your foot then you probably just might have sprained it/strained it. Again, it depends on how hard you did it. If the swelling is right away and it is black, dark purple, and green, see a doctor as quick as you can. You probably broke it.


What should you do if a shampoo bottle hits your foot?

If the top or side of the foot hurts, swells, or bruises, you can apply ice for 10-15 minutes several times a day. Note that the top of the foot can easily bruise because there are many blood vessels on top of the small bones. A badly bruised foot does not necessarily mean the foot is broken. Make sure you elevate the foot so the swelling will come down. If you cannot step without pain, or cannot flex (as in walking, putting the toes down while lifting the heel), you might have broken a small bone. Note, however, that E.R.'s do not normally cast a foot that has a broken small bone on top. They will cast a serious break.

Usually between 1 week and 3 months, though it can take up to 6 months and in theory, there can be permanent swelling (rare). Even after it reduced to normal size, a swelling after a long walk for example, may happen. This is still normal, and does not indicate a wrong/failed procedure.
