Stepped on a nail

My house have been under construction, I was involved working around my house with several other men and yesterday I stepped on the nail and it hurt which cause me having trouble walking or pushing something with my feet, I really hope the pain go away so I can work on my house faster. I just wonder how long it take for the pain to fade away?

OUCH!!

When was the last time you had a Tetanus shot? If it has been past 10 years then it would be recommended to get another one.

Tetanus

My son stepped on a nail last month. I called his doctor and they said it will be sore for a while since it is a deep puncture wound. They prescribe antibiotics for him for a few days to prevent infections. But he did not have to get the Tetanus shot due to he had one along with his immunizations.

I had my last tetanus shot four years ago, When I bumped into a metal shelf, and cut the top of my head at work. They sent me to get one, since I have not had one since I was a teenager.

Better to be safe than sorry.

Allright thank you for the advices, my feet have a bump with little black dot where the nail went through. The bump was the one that weaken my walking, but today my feet seems getting better, I will keep my eye on it because one of my friend told me if it turn into the purple then go to doctor. I really hope it will cure sooner so I can do my house faster.

Thank you everyone again.

Those are crucifixion nails.

Also PuyoPiyo, the little black dot sounds bad to me. I also urge you to see a doctor for antibiotics and a tetanus shot.

Tetanus bacteria is always around. It exists in the soil. If you haven't have a tetanus shot lately, get one even if you're not injured. This is especially important for someone who lives where hurricanes hit. You could be injured cleaning up after the hurricane and unable to get immediate medical attention.

While you're at it get a pertussis booster, too.

Advice courtesy of mom!

Make sure you have a Tetanus shot and pain will be away about one to two weeks!

Take Easy!

Why are you waiting for the black dot to become purple?

You need to get a tetanus shot ASAP.

Today, my walking seems improving, I can walk normal even though I still feel the pain on my feet. The little dot become red now, so I think I will be fine and will be prepared for construction works.

Thank you everyone for the advices

Tetanus
That is true , check when you last had a Tetanus shot and if can't recall when you had one get one right away! My dad once got cut with piece of metal and did nothing! He got a thin red line up his leg , my mom saw it got dad to the doctor right away! Dad had blood poison and it could had killed him! If ever get thin red line after stepping on a nail go to ER right away! Some people do not know about this.
