About a month ago while on vacation in Hawaii, my second toe became inflamed and painful. The swelling doubled the toes in size and was very red and shiny. Went to Doctor upon return a few days later and after Xrays which were negative, had MRI and ultrasound that showed infection in the toe, primarily in the middle of the toe. I was put on 1O days of Kelfex with literally no improvement. I was then admitted to the hosptial for 72 hours of IV antibiotics, both Vancomyacin and another I forgot started with a Z?. The inflammation and coloring improved slightly and was sent home with a 14 day course of 750 MG of Levaquin and with only a few days left I am seeing no change. Toe roughly 50% larger than normal and red. I have steady soreness and pain especially after being on my feet for any period of time. I saw a Infectious Disease Doc in the hospital and will see him next week to see what the plan is?
I do not remember getting stung, bit and no cuts or point of entry for foreign substance? Would appreciate any insight....hard to believe a toe could cause this much trouble
