It could be due to high uric acid

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

Sorry, I am unable to find the Image attached.
Pain and swelling in the right foot of your father could be due to high uric acid level. He can continue taking medication after consulting the doctor.
Food to be avoided in diet includes –meat and poultry. The fibre in fruits, vegetables and whole grains may also help carry excess uric acid out of body.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Take care
