Red hot swollen part is inflammation which can be due to many reasons. It can be some infection or due to injury to joint or arthritis but not to be ignored. First thing is to check any infective locus and reduce the swelling so as there is no further damage to the joint. Have analgesic anti inflammatory initially and if infection is diagnosed antibiotic may also be needed. Amongst herbal medicines I would recommend tab. punarnava guggul Tab Myostaal 1tds with hot water and rest to joint.
