Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear about what's gone on with your tow. It sounds like you've had a cellulitis - infection of the skin on the toe, usually secondary to a small tear in the skin or between the toes. I think it's important to be seen again by the nurse that you saw recently as they can compare it to how it was when they first saw it and it sounds as though you might well need a few more days worth of antibiotics and so I'd suggest you try to be seen in the 24 hours or so. Using TCP in the meantime is a great idea and will help to a degree but ultimately you may need another 5-7 days of antibiotics. Otherwise I'd aim to keep it clean and dry. I hope that helps, all the very best.
