Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem to be concerned by the bleeding from toe and the pain due to gout attack on your toe.
Some medications used in gout can cause serious side effects in some persons especially colchicine. Colchicine related hematologic side effects have included thrombocytopenia, pancytopenia, leukopenia, agranulocytosis, bone marrow failure, bone marrow depression, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and aplastic anemia in patients on long-term therapy and are most common in cases of overdose or intoxication. Persons having unusual bleeding or bruising(as you are having from toe which is not associated with any injury to the toe) and any purpuras on skin must present to the doctor on immediate basis for assessment of colchicine serious side effects.
Hope this helps. Take care.
