big toe is infected, swollen, and peeling?

While I was visiting my friend in las vegas, I forgot to bring enough socks, so there was a point where I had to re-wear some (not my best idea). After a day or two, my toe began to hurt and I noticed it would ooze pus. It also slowly began to swell. When I got home, I kinda performed a "home surgery". I open it up with cuticle trimmers and tried cleaning it out with peroxide. It seemed to work, but an hour later it began leaking a lot of pus, to where it was spilling over my toe and dripping off. I kept trying to clean it until "the flow" slowed. I left it alone after that hoping it would heal itself. It didn't, my toe also began to peel like a sunburn. I'm not sure what I should do now
