Hi there....looks like you are suffering from paronychia. In such cases you will have pain, swelling and sometimes even discharge. You will have to be started on antibiotics and anti inflammatory tablets. Paronychia could be caused by trauma, wearing tight shoes, bacterial infections. Maintain good hygiene. Dip you feet in warm water with little salt in it for 15 min and scrub cleanly. You can do this once or twice daily. Consult with a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment.
