The pinky toe on my right foot, has been broken so many times in the past 13 years, I have stoped counting. The first one hurt pretty good, but it was really just more of an annoying pain. Anyway I left it alone for probably about six weeks, till it quit hurting, then I got it to pop. It hurt like hell when it poped, but that fixed it, so now that's what I do every time it gets stepped on. Why is it that my horse's are the evil type that LOVE to step on your feet? Oh and why is it, that your feet and hands contain the most bones? I mean aren't those the two places that your always hurting. Anyway I would probably just tape the broke finger to another finger or a splint for a day or two, and then take a deep breath and make your knuckle pop, course that's just me, you probably should have a MD, or one of your EMT buddies look at it for you.

Oh, also you can never go wrong with ice, tylenol, and a good tape job. :~D

I already got it to pop. I was telling my mom the pressure is built up to where it feels like it needs to be popped.

The nurse at school said to soak it in epsom salts and water, anybody know what that will do? I've been told by two people in the medical profession that it will both stay on and fall off, so I'm just letting it run its course.

I got cleated in the face at football practice and cut my eye open last year. I was nose, and I broke through the line and the QB started rolling right. I dove and tackled him from the back and he got me in the eye. They had to glue my eyelid back together in the hospital. Luckily the eye itself was ok.

Well, CrazyCadet. Mine is starting to come off, but mine was pure black under the nail, yours just looks a bit red and blue. It will obviously need to be popped but as for the nail, i don't know what to tell ya. Just play it by ear. The soaking in epsom salt and hot water will increase the circulation greatly, helps it to heal. Not sure about anything past that, but i'm soaking it too..... works.

I just felt like quoting myself... Don't ask.

I wanna paint my nail, but i wanna make sure it all turns black.

Sorry to hear about your finger. Only real injury I had was when I busted my head open.
