Brief Answer:
Can be a foreign body.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain at the bottom of the foot with a swelling could be due to a foreign body like sting or a pin. The other cause could be a local infection or an inflammation of tendons or plantar fascia. This needs a direct examination by a physician to find the cause and start proper treatment. Till then avoid weight bearing on the foot and see if a hot compress helps.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
