Broken bone(s)?

So.....

Getting ready for work this morning, and shut my hand in a door. My two end fingers are a bit purple and swollen. The i ran to get a ice pace, and smashed my pinky toe on a door frame. It is aaaaaaagony, I can’t put on a shoe, and it’s purple and swollen. I would like anyone with broken finger and toe experiences to tell me if any of my injuries sound like breaks. 

Update:

Thanks for finger info, could do with toe advice. My toe is black and purple, has a lump, and the purple has spread the whole way up the side of my foot

    Only an x-ray can tell for sure. The usual treatment is to tape the damaged finger(s) to it's neighbour.

      Yeah; I think Barry's got this.  Bruises and soft tissue damage, for sure.  Stick with the ice, and re-evaluate when the swelling goes down a bit.  These days, you really don't want to go to a hospital if you don't have to.

    Just tape the fingers and the toe. Your toe is broken, your fingers are probably sprained
