Suggest treatment for red bump on pinky toe

Woke up yesterday with a red bump on the top left pinky (the top joint right below the nail) and by noon the swelling had moved across the whole joint. It s just on the top side of my pinky. It woke me up a few times last night due to some stinging pain. It felt like some fluid so I poked it with a sterilized pin but nothing came out. I can bend it.
