Emergency room now!  There is not point messing with your health and well-being.  Get down there and get it checked out ASAP!

I get this quite frequently, actually. Athlete’s foot is awful and incredibly uncomfortable, but it doesn’t need a hospital visit, just go to the store and get some epsom salt. Soak your feet (and body, if you want) in a tub with hot water and epsom salt for a while. Then once you are done with that, take some cotton balls and dab your foot with hydrogen peroxide on the spots where it hurts. That will help to get rid of the toxins that cause the breakout. It may hurt a little bit, but it’s well worth it. 

It freaked me out the first time that I got it, but I went to the hospital the first time and this is exactly what they told me to do. They really can’t do anything for you at the hospital, and you’d be wasting time and money.

@PacificMrs:  the fact that her foot is twice its normal size is worrisome.

Increased pain, swelling, redness, tenderness, or heat

@li612:  Yeah I skimmed over that part, haha. My bad! I was still half asleep when I started replying to posts here on WeddingBee. That’ll teach me to respond from my phone while I’m still in bed. 

 

I’m glad you got it taken care of sweetie!
