Symptom #3: Discolored Skin

A broken toe will also result in discolored skin around the site of injury. The toe may look bruised or change color and become very red. This is, however, only temporary and will disappear upon healing. If the toe is at an unnatural angle, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible as this can mean that besides being broken, your toe could also be dislocated.

Since a broken toe is sensitive, it would be best to avoid walking on the affected foot as much as possible. Keeping the foot elevated as much as practically possible would also be best, even after consulting a doctor.
