I have a gout attack…blotches going up my leg?

I have a gout attack that has lasted for over a week now. Right big toe/foot. Very swollen, red, hot, tender, extremely painful!

Now have red blotches going up my leg.Ankle also very stiff. Is there any danger to letting the flare-up run its course? If so, how much longer should I expect to be in this much pain?
