Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I can understand your concern.
Right now there seems to be a bacterial infection of the soft tissues. That's the reason for it being swollen and stiffness.
First that needs to be taken care of. I would recommend an oral antibiotic called azithromycin to resolve it. Application of a mix of cortisone and neosporin cream twice a day after the swelling subsides to take care of the redness.
Please send me a picture of the toes when the swelling subsides for a follow up.
