Red, swollen middle section of right foot, painful. What could be the reason?

ehm hi. My right foot in the area around my little toe (pinky) is partially swollen and entire middle section of my foot is red and swollen. it has been swollen for about 2 days, i thought that maybe it was just a mosquito bite but it is a mix between partially painfull and uncomfortable to put weight on it. And also i know that i haven t stubbed my toe or dropped anything on it. I am a Male, Age 19

Thanks for writing in to Heathcare Magic!
The mosquito bite is neither that severe and nor it can last for two days.
It is some bacterial infection that is causing a cellulitis, you need antibiotics after local physical examination by your physician.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.

Wish you a great health!
