You can try soaking her paw 2-3 times daily in warm water mixed with Epsom salts, for 5-10 minutes at a time. You can use a ziplock baggie or small bowl for the soaks. After soaking, blot the foot dry with a clean towel. Use a cone to prevent her from licking the paw, if needed.
If a foxtail is present, there is a small chance it will work its way out. However, it is more likely that she will need to be seen by her veterinarian for a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication, and possible surgical explore of the area to try and remove the foxtail.
