Tenderness in right knee, groin area. Treatment?

A patient complains of persistent tenderness in the right knee and groin area. The tenderness started a few weeks after he injured the big toe of his right foot, which became red, swollen, warm, and painful. He says the toe improved without medical attention. The knee and groin tenderness remain. What could the physician identify as the cause of the patient’s knee and groin pain? What is a possible treatment?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
This may be the involvement of lymph node , due to the infected toe (lymph node swelling) you can try simple NSAID, if the infection is not there near the toe area then anti inflammatory will work nicely else patient will need antibiotic again, still the clinical examination is rule for right diagnosis Have good day.
