I strongly suggest you see your primary care physician immediately; he or she can either a) send you to the hospital for treatment b) refer you to an open wound specialist c) or refer you to an infectious disease doctor.
You say that you can't take antibiotics; which ones? all of them?
If the toe, foot, and leg are red, hot to the touch, experiencing slight or low grade fever, chills and stuff...call for an ambulance and go to the hospital; you'll need to have a doppler test done on the leg to make sure you have no blood clots; plus you'll need to have blood labs and blood cultures taken!
The toe pus will have to be analyzed to determine the type(s) of bacterium that have infected the toe.
If you are a diabetic and your glucose levels are out of control- the healing process slows down to not-at-all.
Depending upon the extent of the infection you may need to be placed on an I.V. drip of antibiotic versus taking it orally. There are so many broad range antibiotics available- even for people who "can't" take antibiotics; and you can be pre-treated with benadryl so you won't have any adverse reactions.
Please don't wait; you can lose the toe, foot, or leg- and in extreme cases, infections can travel throughout the body and permanently damage vital organs and cause *****. As a matter of fact, don't wait- go to the hospital E.R. right now and get immediate treatment!
Antibiotics are used to treat bacteria infections. It destroys their cell walls in order to kill them. Thus, treat that particular type of disease.Pneumonia is caused by a type of bacteria known as Streptococcus pneumoniae.
Since pneumonia is caused by a bacteria, antibiotics is needed to destroy the bacteria.
We are not physicians as as such cannot and will not speculate officially on your problem. However, common sense says that if your symptoms have not improved, or have worsened, then you may have a more serious infection that originally assumed; you may be infected with an antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria; or you may have been misdiagnosed. In any case, a return trip to the doctor is in order if you want to solve your issue.
cefuroxime is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria, such as bronchitis, gonorrhea,lyme disease ; and infections of the ears , throat, sinuses, bladder tract and skin

Talk with the doctor as to exactly what he is trying to treat with this **** so that you can provide support in the treatment
