What should I do about my foot?
A couple of hours I tripped while walking down a flight of stairs. I scraped my foot and the side of it is extremely swollen right now. It's unbearable to walk on and I've been keeping it elevated and iced. I've never been in this situation before so I'm wondering if I should actually go to the doctor's. Can anyone provide any insight? Thank you!

A doctor wont do much, u need to get to a hospital before it gets a fungal infection etc. my dear.

you should definitely get it checked out

Yeah go to a urgent care.

you should see a doctor before it falls off:/

its broken sprained or fractured duh

I've had a cut like that before but it was on my arm and it ended up being infected with staphylococcus, so I'd suggest you get that looked at. And maybe clean it or something.

ive broken many bone many times!! you need to keep it elevated and iced and if that doesn't help the swelling and everything by tomorrow you should go to the doctor and wear a brace!! things can get way worse if you don't get them checked out soon!!

keep it elevated and raised

you might have badly sprained it or bruised it or something more serious, i think it would be worth making a trip to the doctors just to get it checked out an stop your worrying

well im no doctor and i dont no what it looks like but since u said scrape i think elevation and ice should be good but then u said extremely swollen the swelling should go down by an hour or two and if it doesn't i guess a doctor would be good cuz maybe its infected but again i am not a doctor

a couple hours ago? well ofcourse it'll be swolen for a while. just leave it lone for a while, but if it lasts for more then a day (or two) go to a doc.

the best thing for you to do is get it cheked out.

well you are doing the right thing...If you have insurance then go...If not I would take an Ibuprofen...keep elevated...and Ice it for the first 24 to 48 hours then heat...But if the swelling is not down in a day or so then go...also can you feel your pulses in your foot should be on the inside of ankle and on top of foot...if not go NOW!!!!

I personally don't know, but perhaps this can help:


A doctor, urgent care center or emergency room are probably the best options, but in the meantime, I hope the above information will help ease your pain!

<3 :) :-P :0)
you should probabyl call a friend or family member that lives close by to cme over and help you to the doctor. then ask the doctor and she/he will probably give you medications to reduce the swelling and to keep it elevated on ice for a few hours or soemthing. my mom is a doctor so that is how i know. hope i helped. feel better

When you fell you should have gone to the doctor so they could see it and give you some help.

based on experience i just massage your foot even if it's painful for you.and as for the scrape just wash it.
it will ease eventually.

GO to doctor

if you cant walk, go to the emergency room! trust me, once i got burned by an iron and i didnt go to the emergency room.... well, you get what i mean.

Hayden F
Yes, you should have it xrayed to make sure nothing is broken or fractured. If it is sprained, they will be able to show you how to wrap it, and give you something to help with the pain.

Kaylie Chaisson
you should probably keep it elevated (already done) and iced (also already done). if it is swollen, see if you can keep off of it for as long as possible. just take it easy, and if it gets any worse, like its not healing of anything, definetly go to the doctors. hope that helps! :P

if it doesnt get any better after a while, then yes, it wont go away and be as new in an hour, but if it still looks bad and concerns you in the morning, then get it checked out.
