Hi mcotten;

welcome to HealthcareMagic

Your son is 18 months old and has swelling of leg upto foot so in that case he requires immediate examination by doctor to assess and provide treatment.Since you do not have money for consulting please visit a government run hospital and inquire for charitable trust/foundation who help the needy or you can ask for help in your friends or any willing donor who is ready to help you.In any case your child needs proper examination;investigation and treatment.
