Our expert says:
How long have you been on the antibiotics? It may take a few days before the antibiotics start working but if it does not improve in 5-7 days, you probably need admission and an antibiotic with a drip. Elevating the foot and applying warm, moist compresses may aid the body in fighting infection by increasing blood supply to the tissues as well as by helping the swelling to subside. You should also rest the foot.
