She could be.

Could it be a splinter or thorn or something stuck in there?

Have you got a minor injuries unit you could go to?
Can he walk on it?
Does he have a temp?

I had a lump under my arm not so long back that became infected, consequently I developed a red patch (not line though). But the main reason i knew I had an infection was due to how I felt, temp, shivers etc. How is he in himself, if he is unwell then get him to the docs for some antibiotics as my infection made me unwell very quickly, hth

Also check swollen glands for sign of infection, have heard the line thing before, not sure how much truth in it though

If it looks nasty he will probably develop a temp at some stage (if it is an infection), I had my lump a few days but when i started to feel unwell I went down hill quite quickly!!

haven't heard of that but whatever it is hope they sort it, i should imagine its probably a bit uncomfortable on his toe.

Glad to hear he's got antibiotics though.

Shame there is no fainting away emoticon to react to sugarfree's suggestion, eeek
Glad he is OK and has antibs cod. Red line did sound a bit ominous IMO.
