ANSWER


Dear,

You should apply ichtiol-camphor ointment (black ointment) if you haven’t use it, with bandage over it for few days. This will drain the liquids, if there are any.
If doesn’t help, vet surgeon should explorate the swelling for foreign bodies or correct the nails (if they make problems).

Best wishes,

Damjan
