Infant have swollen toe, mild fever and diarrhea. Could it be an infection?

My 11 month old has swollen big toes and there feels like there may be fluid. She walks fine and puts pressure on them but when you touch them she freaks out. We went to the er last night and they said it may be viral and sent us home. I am worried about an infection. I don t know what can cause this. She has a slight fever and dirhea. She is teething .

Thanks for your query.
I advise you to apply cold compresses over affected area,dive her paracetamol for pain and fever.
At the time of teething babies put every thing in their mouth which leads to diarrhea.give oral rehydration solution after each loose stool.give coconut water,curd,mashed banana.boiled potato.
i suggest you to observe her swelling and in case it increases and fever does not subside.take her to pediatrician.
Your baby will be fine.
God bless,
