Suggest Treatment For Red And Swollen Toe
Could be cellulitis infection. Needs to be seen by a primary care physician
You could be having infection of the toe due to ingrown nail or other infectious causes leading to cellulitis.
Keep it clean and dry. Avoid sweat or water accumulation in the region. Avoid snug or tight footwear.
I wouldn't suggest we wait. Based on what you described, it would be best to show to a primary care physician to prevent spread of infection which can be worse.
I hope I have answered your query.
I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
