In brief: See doctor

A cold floor is an unlikely source of a swollen, red toe.
More likely is an infection along the nail edge, possibly from a torn hangnail or toenail being cut too short (ingrown toenail). Warm soaks in epsom salts may ease the pain & swelling temporarily, but go to a doctor in case there is a more serious infection. If the child has stepped on something sharp & punctured the toe, see doc right away.

In brief: Also....

Dr. Lewis answer is correct.
Also consider a thread wrapped around the toe acting like a tourniquet.This is more of an emergency. Call your doctor.

In brief: I doubt it is from a

Cold floor. Coldness usually has the opposite effect of swelling.
He may have an infection. Go to the pediatrician or foot doctor (podiatrist).
