It has been nearly a month now since I had this pain in my LEFT BIG TOE. The pain usually occurs when I hit the upper part of my toe. The pain is bearable and its like a piercing pain. I'm starting to get worried of what might be the cause of the pain.
Last week, I had my left foot x-rayed and there the results are negative or no fracture nor foreign object inside it. The doctor said, it might be a hematoma because when we visited the doctor, it was purplish in color, so she suggested to apply warm compress to it but still the pain won't go away. I'm doing what she said for 2 weeks now.
Here's a link where you can see a photo of my left big toe:

The skin is like that because I've been dipping my entire foot in a warm basin and I think the skin softened and that what happened.
The pain is concentrated ONLY in the swollen part or the TIP OF THE TOE.
I also can't remember my toe hitting something really hard. I assume that I hit something during my PE Class because I have Beach Volleyball for my PE and we are required to be bare-footed.
I'd appreciate your help and concern
