Question from housewife regarding a possible broken toe...

Question


My adult daughter dropped a piece of furniture on her big toe while moving almost a year ago. It is still red. It seems that the nail has come off but the swelling comes and goes depending on how long she has to stand on it. Sometimes it oozes pus. She puts anti-biotic on it; but has no insurance and can't afford to go to the doctor. What else can she do to help it heal?

Your daughter needs to see a foot doctor. I'm sure there must be somewhere you can get access to the medical care your daughter needs.
