Hi, I'm Dr.Nitika-a board certified physician. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

You can take Amoxicillin if you have infected one.

Also do warm water soaks 3-4 times per day.

Take OTC Advil and Zyrtec at night.

Wear loose shoes or slipper.

You should elevate your foot.

If your symptoms'll not improve then see your doctor for a clinical exam.

Hope this helps.
