How do I know if my toe is broken? And what can I do?

I jammed my foot into some Legos while I was walking. The toe nail was pushed inwards and it is bruised and infected. It hurts to walk on it or put any pressure on it and I can barely bend it. it feels like the toe nail is about to fall off. It also gets swollen at times and a reddish color, different than my other toes. I think it could be broken. How do I know if it is? And if it is, what can I do about it? I already try to soak it in Epsom salt daily. It's the second toe on my right foot if that helps.

I didn't think there was anything they could do with a broken toe! But it would be good to find out anyway.

Go to a doctor and they will know for sure. And I think it might be broken... Sounds like hiw my friends thumb was when she slammed it in a car door... So it's probably broke.

It might just be the damage around the toenail and infection. You definitely need to make sure it doesn't get worse! Go to the ER if it does. When you break a bone you will usually get like a burning feeling where your bone is. Then it will usually swell up around the break. However you might not have noticed since you did so much damage to the front of your toe. All I think they can do with a broken toe is tape it to another toe. I don't even know if they would give you a boot or anything.
