In brief: This does not sound

Athlete's foot is a fungal infection, which causes a red, itchy and possibly slightly painful rash, but does not cause the kind of pain and swelling you are describing. Please see your doctor to get properly evaluated and treated.

In brief: Less likely

This sounds more like a bacterial infection rather than athetles foot.
This one should be seen by a doctor to check and ensure the best treatment and diagnosis. Good luck

In brief: Make sure.

Infections aren't the only conditions that can bring on those symptoms.
You might consider fracture, stress or other wise, of the 5th metatarsal, of little toe.
