A. You won't believe this remedy but it is very effective to reduce the pain. If possible pour cold(not chilled) water continuously on the affected toe. You can do so by tying a handkerchief around the toe and with spray bottle keep putting water on every min or two. Then squeeze the hanky every 7-8min or so. If your child doesn't allow you to do this then just tie a wet handkerchief on the toe and keep replacing with another wet one every 5 min. Believe me this works wonders. I have treated my 12years old son n number of times like this.
