Ok. My little toe is red, sore, and swollen. There is a red streak going from it up my foot to about my ankle. I've had a recurring problem with fungus on my toenail, so I think the infection is due to this, there has been no injury. I'm trying not to worry too much. I am breastfeeding my new 3 month old dd and really don't want to have to go to the doctor and take lord knows what amount of antibiotics. PLEASE tell me there is something else I can do!!! Besides I have no insurance and would have to go to the ER, which means I would have to leave my lo for who knows how long. PLEASE HELP!

I got a red streak once from a tiny wound, and once I put antibiotic ointment on it the streak went away. I normally shy away from that stuff, but I was so grateful for it then!
I, too, think it's not something to wait around about, but you could always try the ointment first, or on your way to the ER.
You could also try some high doses of SA.
Forget the tea, you should be doing extremely high doses of echinacea angustifolia for a day or two. Just my opinion, and something my ND suggested if my infection had not spread so fast.
