What to do if I unintentionally dropped my pocket knife on my foot and now I feel a tingly sensation?
Bruised or injured a: You may have bruised or injured a nerve in your foot. It is more likely you bruised the nerve because of the presence of tingling, which means the nerve is intact, but injured. If no laceration was incurred it is even less likely you injured the nerve permanently. Nerves are slow to heal and may take 6 months or more to return to normal after an injury. Give it time and keep pressure off of it. ...Read more

Arch supports: A semi-rigid arch support is good place to start. You don't want a super flexible, soft gel kind. It should have plastic on the undersurface and cushion on top. It may be 3/4 length or a full insole. Spenco and superfeet are some of the more common brands and can be found in sporting good stores and some pharmacies. No prescription needed. If this doesn't work, a custom orthotic should. ...Read more

Change shoes.: A "corn" is a hard calloused tissue that grows on a toe in response to abnormal friction. Depending on the location of the problem, larger or different style shoes may help alleviate the pain and prevent the "corn" from reoccurring.
