Broken Toes

They don't heal themselves

(HealthDayNews) -- If you like to walk barefoot, you've probably stubbed your toe on many occasions. The pain can be excruciating, but it's usually short-lived.

But if the aching persists, your toe may be broken and should be checked by a doctor.

It's a misconception that broken toes will self heal, according to Stanford University Medical Department. A broken toe that's not taped properly may heal incorrectly and require surgery.

So see your doctor if you suspect you've broken a toe. With correct treatment, it should be as good as new in about three to six weeks.
