Hello Customer!
This is usually due to inflammation or infection. If there is no redness pain or swelling then infection is less likely and gout is less likely. Inflammation can also be due to overuse or activity and would more likely benefit from rest and ice. If you are having redness or swelling you should see your dr as this may require prescription meds. If no change with the ice and an over the counter antiinflammatory daily for a week then it warrants an exam.
Good Luck
Hope this helps.
