A:   Hello
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.

There is an infection of the toe webspace. This will require proper cleaning of the wound and use of antibiotics like Cefixime or amoxicillin. You may also use paracetamol for the pain relief. If the wound still doesn't settle down then there is a possibility of it being a fungal infection. In that case you will require some add on medicine to treat the fungal infection as well.
Do meet your doctor and get these medicines prescribed.

Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health.
