Is the toe red and warm to touch? Is there any drainage around the nail? Is there anything that could be an insect bite? Any red streaking? Yes to any of these questions, go to a walk-in clinic. I would still recommend going to a clinic to get this diagnosed and treated.

If you are not planning to seek medical attention please soak in warm hot water. Use topical antibiotic. Red streaking you must go to clinic Good luck

You may have an infection. You need to see a Doctor or nurse. You may need antibiotics. Don't let this get worse.
