Brief Answer: Anti inflammatory drugs to be taken Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the quick reply For an inflamed toe I suggest you to take a course of antibiotic, the ideal antibiotic would be a combination of amox with clavulanic acid, taken twice daily for 5 days. It popularly comes as Tab Augmentin. The ideal anti inflammatory drug would be to take Tab Enractin plus twice daily for 3 days, it also helps reduce the pain. I advice to discuss my suggestions with a general surgeon, please do not consider this my prescription to you I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health and a speedy recovery
