Brief Answer:
Supportive care

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Pain in thumb of throbbing nature is likely a local inflammation mostly due to bending,twisting or some sprains. Antibiotics are not needed if there is no hidden abscess or erythema around or under nail beds. All you need is some good pain killers and rest. If the pain persists for over a week despite pain control, or it swells more or changes color then you should go to near by orthopaedic surgeon and let them have a look and run some tests. Control your diabetes levels of glucose and see if it helps.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.

I am having throbbing pain after a dance injury on the inner portion of my right foot between the arch and the ankle. The accident happened late last night but the pain has gradually intensified over 24 hours. Redness and bruising has also gradually increased and spread. Minimal swelling. I want to know if this sounds more like a break or a sprain? Being a dancer, I have broken my 4th and 5th metetarsels of both feet and I have severely sprained my left ankle. This is a new injury and it feels different than my previous injuries. Thank you
