Foot Injury: At around 4:30pm today I hit my foot, smallest toe is slightly cut into, vertically. And ring toe is bruised under the nail. Pulsing?
No cause for concern: The small superficial cut on your small toe shouldn't be much of an issue as long as you can move your toe and feel the sensation at the tip of the toe.

Glass vs infection: There is a chance you glued your wound shut over a small piece of glass or dirt which can form a foreign body in your foot.
