Stinging in the toe followed by black dot surrounded by a bubbly, itchy circle during swimming. What could it be?

i was swimming, and felt a sting in my toe . i then noticed a black dot, which i thought was marker. i rubbed it off and it was like rubbing off a blister . the next day i woke up and there was a circle around the dot, bubbly, and very itchy. it almost looks like poison ivy but i can t think of a time i was in the woods recently.
