In brief: Yes... possible.
After having a chronic ingrown nail some may develop inflammation at the nail border and possible overgrowth of the skin which may need to be removed.

In brief: Injury
The sharp end of nail probably injures the skin of toe, resuled in infection or inflammation.
Using cool compresses to calm it down. If no significant sign of infection, the inflammation/pain would subsided in time.
