In brief: Ingrown toenail

It seems like you have an infected ingrown toenail.
You should try to soak the area in epsom salts and warm water on a daily basis. If the infection does not resolve you should see a podiatrist for further evaluation. Untreated infected ingrown toenails can cause the infection to spread and could also infect the bone which is underneath the nail.
