It can help, but...: Soaking can help to "draw" out the glass, but if it's too deep to see, i would suggest having a podiatrist check it. Removing any foreign body is best done with the right equipment. You want to make sure that you get all of it out so as to avoid an infection which can start from the small piece but spread to the entire body. ...Read more
Glass in foot: Glass is a bioinert material, which means that it doesn't provoke an inflammatory, foreign body response. A piece of glass has the potential to remain for years and years with no detrimental effects. Many other materials are similar and are intentionally put into the body to correct problems. Think of lens implants, artificial hips and artificial heart valves, to name a few. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are reasons why, if possible, can a piece of glass in ones foot never lead to any infection?
Yes: The body is able sometimes to "wall off" a foreign substance, such as glass, and it can then stay inside for many years without causing problems. However, without warning an infection can arise even many years or decades after. If you have a piece of glass in your foot its a good idea to have it removed. ...Read more

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?
Inflammation: will certainly occur with an injury. Ice early, elevation then warmth later. The problem is that this presupposes that the injury Stopped occurring. If there is continuing injury, it's going to stay inflamed. Infection OR a retained shard of glass will keep the area inflamed until it is treated. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health ...Read more

I stepped on a piece of glass, cut my foot. Didnt go to the doc. Had td shot. Low grade fever, swollen lymph node under arm past week. What's wrong?
Mixed message: You describe a weird situation. Is the cut on the foot red, hot, swollen, tender and getting worse ? No lymph nodes in the groin? Are you coughing, nauseated, burning on urination...Etc.? A foot wound should have local nodes involved. You may have a virus, or something else going on besides the healing foot cut. If you are not getting better, a doc visit is probably a good idea to sort this out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
