My husband is 61 yrs. old, 260lbs, 5 10 . He has infected big toe due to ingrown toenail that he keeps messing with, swollen and red, he is walking on side of foot . Tonight he said the outside of his ear was swollen and in front of his ear on face is hard and swollen. He says no pain in jaw. I am thinking infection in system.
