In brief: Foot infection

You should be seen and examined and diagnosed appropriately by an orthopedist and/or an infectious diseases expert.
This has the potential to develop into very serious deep tissue infection including osteomyelitis and needs aggressive diagnostic and management techniques, probably including imaging studies. Do not wait longer. Go now.
