It could be an infection, ingrown hair, or friction blister depending on location and the ooz! there are many possibilities and you need to see a podiatrist or your doctor for correct diagnosis and treatment plan.

Hard to know what this is without seeing it. If the area of redness and warmth and tenderness continues to increase would recommend seeing a doctor asap.
