Its all red too and it hasnt gone down all day. I iced it for about ten minutes today but im sure thats not enough, what should i do and what is this? Also it hurts to move it at all my tendon is so red its crazy. thanks for the help!

Calor, Rubor, Tumor, Dolor = The Principles of Celsus. These are the criteria still used today to determine whether there's an infection or not. Heat, Redness, Swelling, Pain. You've got an infection. Go to the doctor immediately.

Ballet-caused or not, I'm glad you took care of it. Foot infections from whatever cause can be very damaging!
