Thanks for using Healthcaremagic. First thing you must clarify is Swollen foot is either Chronic or Acute. If it is acute with bleeding foot and pain, may be due to Snake bite. So bleeding time, clotting time and other blood parameters to be checked immediately and proper anti venom must be given in time. It may also be due to other bleeding disorders. Anyway if the bleeding is not controlled, it is better to check blood parameters and take proper treatment.

Take care
