Small, red lump on the toe, clear gel like substance on squeezing, tendency to fill up again

I have a small lump on my toe (next to little one) that is red. If i squeeze it, a clear gel like substance comes out (looks similar to Bonjela ). Its slightly painful, and it eventually fills up again. What is it?
