Help - wore sandals that rubbed top of toe - looks awful, what can I do?

Wore new sandals, rubbed the top of big toe. Just below cuticle.

As I am pale, looks really horrid - short of plaster shock how can I heal it quickly and make it look nicer?

Have a big event on Sunday (had pedicure, gel toes and spent ages prepping feet for glamorous, strappy shoes confused)

All advice appreciated

Nappy rash cream might help
Or a cream with zink
Not wearing those sandals again before your event
Maybe try concealer. Never tried it myself so don't know if it would stain your strappy shoes or end up looking worse than your rubbed toe.

Don't let a bit of rubbed skin ruin your event! I doubt anyone will zoom in on that one toe. You'll be too busy having a good time to care!

Germolene wound care cream is fantastic for quick healing.

I use brulidene on everything that looks red or sore.
