I understand the pain has been present since a day. If there was no injury, we need to consider either raised uric acid or other inflammation as the causative factor. You need to consult an Orthopaedic surgeon, who will prescribe anti-inflammatory medications and get some blood tests done. In the meanwhile, she can apply ice over the toe and drink plenty of water.
