Thanks for posting your query.
Swelling over your toe seems to be due to infection.

So I advice you not to treat it by yourself. Consult a doctor nearby for thorough examination, investigation and treatment plan according to that.

Meanwhile give rest to the toe, avoid putting weight over it. You can take anti-inflammatory drug like mortin to reduce pain and inflammation.

Wishing you good health
