my friend, I would bet that if he did not have any injury to her foot that you have gout, which is an accumulation of crystals forming in your joint caused by uric acid buildup. The treatment his anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen 600-800 mg 3 times a day until pain relief. These are extremely painful, and will eventually improve on their own, but taking anti-inflammatories will certainly accelerate the process of healing. If you're getting red streaking up her leg that could signal infection, but it sounds like this is more of a joint problem than anything else. Hope this helps and have a good day.
