In brief: Ingrown Nail

If the pain is at the edge of the toenail, this could be a classic ingrown nail.
This can also become red and swollen in time. An ingrown nail can be removed. Another possible condition could be a bone deformity if the pain is closer to the joints.

In brief: Depends

A variety of problems can occur to or around the big toe.
If the pain and "pink" area is to the bone prominence at the base of the big toe, then it may be a bunion. This can be aggregated with activity and some shoe gear. Have it evaluated by your podiatrist for options. Dr l.
