Hello user,
As per clinical history, most probably, I think its a infection of your nail pulp, also called as Felon. Felons are closed-space infections of the fingertip pulp.

Its difficult from my side to diagnose things without seeing them, it would be preferable if you can upload the pic, or rather go to nearby physician or surgeon to get yourself your toe examined !!!

hope my info helped you
