Thanks for the query.
I completely understand your concern and I hope I am able to help you for the same.
Looks like your husdand has developed cellulitis
over the feet.
We can try conservative treatment first but if the condition continues to worsen , then you might need to consult a physician.
Avoid touching it too much.
Avoid using any kind of cold
dreams or hair oils..as it might increase the lesion
You can start using any topical antibiotic/antiseptic cream(like mupirocin
cream) over the lesion for 2-3 days
Take some pain killers along for relieving the associated pain and discomfort
keep foot end elevated esp at night in order to prevent any swelling
are required if the cellulitis increases, which a dermatologist
/ physician can examine and suggest
Wishing your husband speedy recovery
