Sudden onset of burning pain in toe followed by swelling, bruising around it. Cause?

Was standing completely still when suddenly was stricken with a excruciating burning pain at the joint of my second toe from my big toe...when the pain subsided the toe began to swell ..a day later I m left with a bruise in a straight line with bruising around it..I m guessing its a burst blood vessel but am unsure and wandering what couldhave caused it.

the history of acute onset of pain, burning in nature, in the second toe followed by a bruise and a swelling would need more history of the circumstances viz., where were u, in a park etc, bare foot or open foot wear.
The burning sensation is suggestive of an insect bite, which can also lead to a reddish coloured bruise (ecchymosis ).
Other options like gout really do not come on in such a manner.
Hope this is helpful to u.
With best wishes
