Hello Ferry, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
The complaint you mentioned could be caused by an inflammatory reaction around your big toe. The most common inflammation is caused by an infection, either viral or bacterial. This condition is often referred to as Paronikia. Complaints that will be felt on the toes / hands are pain, fever, to festering. These complaints can disappear, and will get worse if not handled properly.
One of the most common causes of infection is with the condition of the hands, where the growth of the nails is not normal, causing the nail to grow into so that pressing the surrounding tissue and cause accumulation of bacteria in the place. This condition often occurs due to poor nail cutting techniques.
Respond to questions you give regarding solutions or treatments. Can be seen from the condition of your big toe, which must be examined directly. If the tissues around the big toe do not fester, but only swell. Eating anti-inflammatory drugs such as acetamenofen, or steroids, and antibiotics alone may be enough. However, if complaints of festering nails, or complaints often disappear, and very disturbing toenail extraction is recommended.
Right now what your sister can do is:
Avoid wet, scrubbing, dirty on, and humid conditions on the wound.
Avoid wearing footwear that is too open, or too narrow.
Consult a doctor immediately.
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to increase your immunity.
Avoid cutting nails too tight.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you :)
