For the past three days I had some swelling and what appeared to be an infection in my large toe that likely was due to bacteria getting under the soft wet cuticle while I waded this past weekend so I went to see my doctor this morning. I explained the nasty water and he agreed it was likely as I explained and went ahead and drained the infection and prescribed antiobiotics to take care of it. I also told him I wanted a Tetanus booster since it had been a while since I had one just in case so they gave me one. Hopefully the infection will clear up quickly. I'll probably fish out of the kayak a bit more until the water conditions in the rivers improve.
