Re: red, swollen, hurting toes

If he has an infected ingrown toenail, then temporarily, soaking in warm (not hot ) water for several minutes 3times a day and dressing the areas with a topical antibiotic and keeping the area covered might be helpful. Without seeing it, though I can not be sure and my advice certainly is to have it seen about ASAP.
