Ice it. I'm not medic, but I have injuries all the time such as this.
Ice it for a few minutes, then take it off. Repeat as necessary.

Yup... thats a good plan. Or you can go to a doc and get an xray to see if its broken [Disclaimer]It is never a bad idea to see a liscenced MD or DO rather then solicit advice over the internet.[/disclaimer]

Most likely there is not much that you can do with a fx toe other then to tape it to your other toes to splint it.

One thing that I have done with some success is the two bucket method. Bucket #1 has very cold ice water, #2 has HOT water as hot as you can stand.

The idea is to plunge your foot in the hot as you can stand water for as long as you can, and then plunge your foot in the ultra cold water, again for as long as you can stand. Alternate like this for about 15 minutes out of every other hour. Apparently what this does is to make the tissues around the injury exapand and contract and in a sense to pump the edema (swelling) out of the tissues.

Other good bets in addition to this are Ibuprofen 600mg every 8 hours, Tylenol 500mg every 4 hours, and staying off of your feet as much as possible. When sitting, prop your foot up on a pillow and if you can, do it in such a way that your foot is higher then your heart -- hard to do sitting down, but better when reclining.

If it is not better in a few days, then you need to get it evaluated by a physician.
