Swelling near the toe with itching, bruising. Reason? Bug bite?

I was standing up and all of a sudden the ball of my foot just below my little toe swelled up. Doesn t appear to be a bite and the only sensation I had was that it felt a little itchy. No burning feel. A little sore if I walk on it but nothing severe. A day later the swelling has reduced 50% and heavy bruising is showing. Any idea what it could be? This is the second time that it has happened. The first time was a few months ago and I just assumed it must have been a bite of some sort, but couldn t find any evidence of one. This happening a second time is really weird and I m wondering what it is.

there are some micro organisms who have such coating on their body which when comes in contact with skin of humans causes allergy and rashes
now since it has reduced to 50 % as you say , so dont worry it will subside in a day or two
if you are feeling sore you can take some analgesic viz combiflame for a day or two
also you can take cetrizine which is a known anti allergy drug
hope that helps
