Hi, it looks like either cellulites or bone fracture in your foot. In cellulites swelling, redness,fever, inguinal lymph node enlargement will be there. In fracture severe pain swelling redness,difficulty in movement are the presenting symptoms. Go for xray foot, cbc. If pain is there you can put ice packs over it. Give rest to that foot, use crepe bandage. Consult ortho and general surgeon once.
