My grandson has a toe on each foot that is swollen at the end of the toe(not ingrown toenail) is red and 1 toe today had pus in it. He has developed an under the skin rash on both feet (on top) and on top of his hands. He has been running fever for 2 days. Help!

  • I don't know, but you will have to give more info. Is he on any meds or supplements (vitamins etc) and how much? Has he been to doctors and if so, what did they say? Fever with a rash is not a good sign, he needs a doctor.

  • I would definitely take him to see a doctor. The rash and swollen toe may not be related...he may have a rash from another cause and a simple ingrown toenail...but since he has a fever....they may be related and need immediate medical attention. Note: I would definitely try to get him tested for arthridities.
