Itchy, red, swollen, and sore toes.

Thought it was athletes foot but now I'm starting to wonder.  Years ago I attended a school and lived on campus, shared a bathroom with three other girls.  During that time I noticed my foot started to itch and flake a lot but only my right foot.  I figured I had contracted athletes foot so I started using an antifungal cream on my toes but it never really went away.  Even now I still have this problem. For days now the same forth and fifth toe on my right foot have been red, swollen, itchy and sore but it's worse than the "usual" because they never used to swell this badly.  It hurts to walk at first but after a while I am alright but still the skin is very tight and it's so uncomfortable.  Please, can someone tell me what may be wrong?  I don't have any medical insurance or I would have went to a doctor about this long ago.  If a picture may help I can provide one.

hi there, I have this problem sometimes. are your feet really cold too. it could be frost bite my toes go really tight and swell n go really blood red, you need to go the doctors for cream to rub on them and put very thick warm socks on. I have to wear them constantly.
hope this helps.

Here are the links to photographs of the toes affected.  I know that no one wants to see my ugly toes but I thought maybe it would eliminate some things it could be or someone will recognize it.
