Be gentle : You must be careful in how you treat this. Clean this with gentle soap and warm water. You must avoid anything that will interfere with normal healing. Use a simple Band-Aid and anti-bacterial ointment And keep the tip of your toes from rubbing on the inside of your shoe. Call your doctor for increasing pain, swelling or drainage.
