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?

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

Shoes or Toes.: The first thing to do is find the cause of the redness and swelling. Since it involves both little toes, my first guess is that your shoes have something to do with it. Of course, the other way to look at it is that your toes are to big. The solution is to change the style of the shoes or change the style of the toes. I go for a serious reconsideration in shoe style and fit. ...Read more

They do grow in size; but if there's swelling or redness, that is inflammation, possibly related to infection, which should be evaluated. ...Read more
