Stepped on a nail, been 3 days since then,my last tetanus shot was a long time ago,should I soak my foot in water and get off any dead skin?
So I was chopping up this old dresser out side to burn it. As i was breaking it i stepped on a nail and it went threw my old rubber sneakers into my foot, not to deep tho, so i went to the bathroom to look at it, no blood so i just put back on my sock and went back out side, that was 2 days ago and now theirs a little dark red area inside my foot, so i wiped it down with a alcohal wipe, then put and antibiotic on it and a band aid, i did ALOT of walking recently and when evr i lean on that side on my foot (Area near big toe but not actualy on big toe) it hurts.
Mylast tetanus shot was way more then 10 years ago, i told my mom and she said that she would call the doc when she got a chance.
i heard that soaking my foot to make it bleed helps.
Should i soak it?
