Paronychia?: Sounds infected. Source may have been the injured border of the nail. May need antibiotics. Hard to say from here, but if this is progressing rather than getting better I would get to your doc.

Mgt.: Please see urgent care or the ED. You may have an infection which is spreading. I would recommend cultures of the blood and throat.
