Have swollen toes,itching and pain in ankles. Home remedies?

Hi, My toes are swollen. Initially it was just one figure but now it has increased to both the toes. There is lot if itching and of the ankle is paining a lot. This started some 1 week before but I thought this may be due to some other thing. The pain and itching is more in the night as compared to the day. Any home treatment advise will be helpful.
