I was diagnosed with toenail fungus 3 weeks ago and

Patient : I was diagnosed with toenail fungus 3 weeks ago and had an infection in that toe (middle left) the er Dr put me on keflex 500mg 7days worth and they gave me another refil after cause I was still having problems after. My question is, I don't see the podiatrist for 5 mor days and my toe is feeling the same easy it was before. Swelling, hard, very painful, tender to touch, red and pulsating. I have been doing Epsom salt soaks 3 times a day plus tea tree oil and I'm at a loss on what to do. Ibuprofen doesn't do anything and most of my toenail is gone except for a small part at the cuticle that is yellow. The cuticle part is where a lot of the pain is and at the tip of my toe. Please, any help would be appreciated.
