Are you able to send a picture of the swelling?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
This isn't re swelling in between the toe there isn't anything in there either and it's a lil bulgy to the top part of the leg

That looks like a generalized cellulitis possibly as a consequence of the cystic type lesion between his middle toes. Has he seen a vet about this so far?
