Question: Should I see a doctor for a broken pinky toe?

You can manage a fractured toe very safely yourself as long as it isnt your big toe, isnt crooked or out of line and there is no skin wound over or near the fracture. You should, however, see a doctor for your broken toe if: The pain becomes worse and isnt relieved by normal painkillers.

Can a doctor do anything for a broken toe?

Usually, you can treat a broken toe by taping it to a neighboring toe. But if the fracture is severe — particularly if it involves your big toe — you may need a cast or even surgery to ensure proper healing.

What do doctors do for a broken little toe?

If there is a minor or small fracture in a bone of one of the small toes, a doctor may only need to tape the injured toe to the one next to it for support. This treatment is called buddy taping. Put a small piece of cotton or gauze between the toes that are taped together.
