The symptoms of severe pain and swelling in the toe, could be associated with bacterial infections, or metabolic conditions like gout.

Diagnosis of the cause, includes a physical examination and blood tests, and a Xray to rule out infection of the underlying bones of the foot.

Treatment includes antibiotics and NSAIDs (advil, or tylenol), and foot rest.

You might consult a doctor for a examination and proper treatment of your condition.

I hope this helps.

I will be available for any follow up questions you may be having.
