Foot itching, bruise, tenderness, red marks on top of foot, no injury. Causes?

About a week ago I noticed my foot was itching, I rubbed against it with my other foot as I was laying on the sofa and noticed it felt like my foot was bruised. I took my sock off and could not see anything but it felt tender. The next day I woke up and it was still feeling bruised and was now red. The red marks were on top of my foot where and a little bit down the side where my big toe is. It has now been a week and it is still red and feels bruised and is painful to put all my weight on. I have not banged it or dropped anything on it to cause this.
