If you need to take something for a fever, from now on take Acetaminophen instead. ...Read more

I can't tell from your question if your soles are also red and swollen or NOT red and swollen. If yes, a rare condition called erythromelalgia might be considered. Consider a Dermatology consult, too. Good wishes:) ...Read more
