It sounds like you have the beginnings of an ingrown toenail--see a foot specialist soon, and they will help you get rid of it before it becomes infected. They will also be able to help you prevent a recurrence.

Is there swelling, redness or warmth of the toe? These signs would indicate either inflammation or infection. Causes include gout, cellulitis , arthritis, and fracture. More info is needed.
