The treatment for gangrene is amputation as the tissue has become necrotic (dead and rotten) and is unable to be saved
antibiotics are then given to fight any of the bacteria that may have migrated to other sites
so you either have the toe removed now or wait a while and lose the leg or your life

I have an infected toe which I have been treated by podiatrist but it has got pus now I soaked it in salt water and put iodine dressing on it but its still very sore,i cant take antibiotics.


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!
