    Forget about your sore throat. See your doctor about your toe. You may have developed cellulitis in your foot. I developed cellulitis from a cut (or rubbed spot)  between my big toe and the toe next to it, from the little strap that goes between those two toes when you wear flip-flops. My entire foot swelled up to twice it's normal size almost overnight, and was discolored, red, and painful. I'm been on antibiotics every 6 hours for over a week, and I'm still taking them.

      I agree with Edna.  It would be a good idea to go to an urgent care clinic today if you can't see your primary care doc right away.

    Set up a foot bath with Epsom Salts and hot water that's at a tolerable temperature.  Then, soak your foot in it for 10 to 15 minutes whenever it hurts.  Bring a timer and something to read while you're waiting.  This foot soaking method did wonders for my infected ingrown toenail problem!

    However, you should still see a doctor, just to be on the safe side.

    If you see red streaks spreading up from the toe, don't wait for the regular doctor. It's ER time.

    Go to your regular doctor first.
