Painful wound between toes

Patient

Q: I was in the garden, when i accidentally stabbed my self between my forth and fifth toe on my rake. The cut was almost a centimetre deep and i fainted shortly afterwards. It did not hurt much the day it happened but i cleaned it and put antibiotics on it. The next day (this morning) i changed the bandage and put more antibiotics on it but I've had an aching pain around the area all day, almost to the point that i couldn't walk. I also noticed that the area around it was swollen. So I'm wondering why there is so much pain. Are there sensitive nerve endings in that area that were damaged? Or is an infection spreading regardless of the antibiotics i applied?
