Been a month. How is that eggplant...er, toe? Non-displaced, non-rotated closed toe injury needs no significant treatment. Possibly taping to the 4th toe or wearing stiff shoes could provide some splinting and relief. 6-8 weeks healing time and it'll be ready for the next encounter with a bedpost or other bump in the night...

After cracking my toe on the bedpost several times, I took A few of those beer can ‘coolies’ And put them on all 4 corners. Of course I haven’t come close to cracking a toe since.
