Hi I am a South Asian. A ladle fell on my foot and there was a bluish (or purplish) discoloration in my toe immediately. The coloration was not red anytime after the injury. Though it was not red colored any time, can it be a bruise? What else can it be? Thanks.
Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does not diagnose conditions or recommend treatments on line. Dropping a heavy object on your foot can indeed produce trauma, including bruising. It may not be serious, but to be on the safe side you should probably consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. This would be our recommendation especially if you are experiencing any pain and/or redness for more than a few days. We hope you will do this, and that your foot will soon be back to normal.
