One of my toes has been extremely itchy, swollen and hurts when I try to bend. tried Benadryl (diphenhydramine) anti itch and few others. Not a bug bite, what is it?

In brief: Fungal?

When an area gets itchy and swollen plus some pain, there are many potential causes but I think a fungal infection is the most likely cause.
However it may be a mixed bacterial and fungal infection as well. See doctor.
