My sister has swelling and excessive pain on her toe, which also has pus and blood secreting. Does she need a surgery?
Hi, From your description (swelling, bleeding, and pus), it sounds like your sister has developed an infection in her toe. Without seeing and examining the toe, and maybe getting an X-ray, it would be impossible to know how severe the infection is. A small, superficial infection may only require antibiotics. Larger, deeper infections (or if the infection develops into an abscess, or pus pocket) require surgery to drain and clean the bacteria and dead tissue. I recommend seeing a doctor right away. Your primary doctor, an emergency doctor, a podiatrist, or general surgeon should be able to diagnose and treat your sister’s infection. Don’t wait, because infections can sometimes spread very quickly. Wish you and your sister good health, Dr. Samson Chan READ MORE
