Thanks for writing to us.
You can soak the toe in warmwater with epsom salts and see if the swelling subsides. This is likely to be an infection which needs systemic antibiotics.
I hope this information has been helpful for you.

out side of my foot by little toe hurts why.
Perhaps, the shoes you wear are too tight and cause local injuries. I advise to:
- avoid wearing tight shoes
- soak your feet inside warmwater and little salt and soda
- apply hydrating cream
- analgesic cream can help reduce pain unless injury is present
Let me know if I can assist you further!
