Infection or what?

I have swelling in both my feet and ankles, is it an infection or more? By the way I'm a 25yr old man

probably not the direct symptoms of an infection but maybe still a Immunological problem.

you could get a appointment with a Rheumatologist

Swelling in both feet and ankles is a hallmark of fluid retention. If it continues for two weeks you should see a physician for an evaluation. Try 2000 mg of vitamin C a day in two divided doses. This is a mild diuretic. Do not self-prescribe diuretics other than vitamin C.

It could be an allergic reaction to medication.  I know a woman who had a reaction to antibiotics - her  legs are swollen and actually weeping from the skin stretching so much.  She is taking antihistamines and her mother is helping by bandaging and wrapping her legs....  Also, heart trouble can cause edema.
