diagnosis this slow moving purple toe infection

I've had a persistent infection in my toe for the last 2 years. the toe has been a purple and sometimes blisters up but not in the last week. It has, in the past, responded very well to long soaks in the water. Lately it has barely even been discolored at all but today I was working outside in the hot weather and I noticed bleeding around the toenail. If it was any other toe but this one I would have ignored it. the purple color in the toe migrates slowly if at all. adjacent toes haven't caught it. I tried to attach a picture not sure if its working. 35y.o. male otherwise good health.
