You absolutely shouldn't give him anything over-the-counter (OTC), as these are mostly poisonous to dogs and cats (often times causing severe stomach ulcers and kidney failure)! I'd recommend that you bring him to a vet for exam to find out what's going on - he may have something stuck in his foot and an underlying infection, or a soft-tissue injury. Your vet will be able to appropriately dispense pain medication for him.
