Hi Raji

thanks for posting your query

Your wife might have an inflammatory swelling or it may be an acute attack of gout.

So it needs limb elevation, ice fomatation, anti-inflammatory drug like ibuprofen.

Inv. like serum uric acid, TLC, DLC is required.

So you have to visit an orthopaedician for exam. of foot.
