Big Toe Red Swollen Sore Feel Unwell

I would like to get help with which remedy to take.
For the past month my big toe on my right foot has been red and sore. For the past 3 days I am feeling nervous and hot but get cold if I uncover.
My toe nail is a yellowish brown colour. I may have bumped it but can’t remember how.
I am 67 year old female and have used homeopathic remedies for over 30 years with many good cures. Sometimes I need help choosing the correct remedy.
My full history is in my previous post (swollen gland in neck) If more info is needed let me know. Homeopathy is the best and I thank you for your help.
Currently taking Hepar sulph calc 30c and Sulphur 30 c and tissue salt calc sulph
Thank you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.


15 drops in a cup containing an ounce of water, sip one third of it, 15 minutes later sip the next third of it, and 15 minutes later take the last third of it.HALF AN HR BEFORE DINNER.



Dose five (5) drops/pellets , taken at the same time 3 Times daily.

Take the remedies until symptoms are improved.

Keep all doses 30 minutes before or after food, drink and teeth brushing.

Here is my feedback.
Big toe on right foot is still red.
Feeling not as hot as before and have a more stable temperature. I have more energy but get tired. Had to cut the bike ride short.
Anxiety gone. But still want to stay near home.
Throat was a bit sore when swallowing and has now turned red.
Phlegm was at back of nose all week and now in throat and easy to get out.
Lower back slightly sore all week.
Outspoken this week fault finding with my family
Joints sore worse in evening. Each night it’s a different joint. Only hurts when I move the joint or bump it on a hard surface. This week since I felt better then the joints hurt.
Forehead itchy with some small bumps.
Eyelids itchy. Vision is double lately and this happened when I was 6 yrs old like this.
Outbreak on tip of nose.
Outbreak around outside edge of lips.
Gland in neck is swollen on the right side.
Voice gets raspy and that started today.
I have noticed an annual flair up in spring when I get the first mosquito bite. That was in May this year.
I am generally a positive person and always try to forget about all the small joint pains. I just hope they don’t get worse and deform more than they are now.
I am on no medical prescriptions and trust homeopathic remedies always. Thank you for your help. Let me know if you need more clarification.

Here is my feedback.
The big toe on right foot is still red but after bath was not as red. Redness came back after a few hours.
On second day pain at top of left leg. Pain and swelling in first finger of right hand.
On third day pain at top of right leg near hip and felt a bit dizzy in afternoon. In evening I was cold and anxious and had diarrhea 3-4 times. I usually have bowel movements in morning and afternoon.
On fourth day big toe still red and feel better. Have more energy as the day progresses. Did lots of activities and walking. Was happy and did lots of talking and voice gets raspy in evening. Have headache in back of head after midnight and cannot get to sleep.
No pain in legs. Fingers are less swollen and sore like after a workout which is better than the swollen soreness of the second day.
I also get so busy that I forget meals. Today I forgot lunch and finally ate something in late afternoon. I am always trying to keep my weight above 94 pounds. I am 5 ft 2 inches tall. The medical doctor has me seeing a dietitian for advice when needed on how to gain weight.
I hope all this information helps. Thank you.

Hello here is my feedback.
Big toe is red and swollen. Mail has changed and now has white on top quarter which peeled off a bit. Top quarter of nail is now a lighter more normal colour. Rest of mail is still a darker colour.
Day 1 - Headache in neck and back of head. Gone next morning. Felt cold in evening.
Day 2 - sore swollen small finger joints now slightly better.
Day 3 - tired after bath. Slight pain in chest left side comes and goes. Only lasted a few minutes. Outbreak in skin vulva stings and is now gone.
Day 4 - sore right shoulder in evening now better. Mosquito bite on forehead swollen and itchy. Absent minded and almost lost my phone after meeting an old friend. This happens to me whenever I have an exciting day I get absentminded. Still have outbreak on tip of nose.
I have more energy for cleaning the house and meeting friends and able to get to sleep at night and feel somewhat rested in morning. If you need more information let me know. Feeling patient and thankful today.

Here is my feedback.
Big toe on right foot is still red and a bit swollen. White part at top trimmed off easily. Now the whole nail is yellow and brownish colour. Pain inside toe lasted about 5 minutes and feels better when press on toe.
Have been waking up at same time each morning feeling a bit more refreshed and have energy during the day. As evening comes I feel soreness in joints and tiredness. I have soreness according to the activities that I did during the day. After bike riding I have sore leg muscles as if it was the first ride of the season and legs are a bit sore. One of the days I was tightening stiff a water jug cap and my wrists and arms were sore in the evening so I couldn’t do anything that required strength. Lifting 2 yr old grandson was painful that night.
Throat is still tickling and a bit raspy. I sneeze and blow nose once a day. Also spit out phlegm during the day which is easy to get out from throat and behind nose.
Outbreak on tip of nose is gone.
Hemorrhoids are sore after bowel movement. Bowel movement goes quickly and painless mostly diarrhea and some a bit formed. Sometimes at the same time as urine in the morning and at lunch time.
I get cold easily and have to wear layers of clothing.
I have been relaxed mostly and helping others to relax but can be quick to answer back if someone is provoking me these days.
If more information is needed let me know. Thank you.
