..If in doubt , call your doctor. These symptoms may mean your infection is getting worse, and may require surgical debrided net or IV antibiotics.

In brief: PUNCTURE WOUNDS

Most heal uneventfully; 10% of patients develop complications like infection or abscess.
A hot, red, swollen foot with extreme pain are signs of infection. Treatment of infection can be antibiotics alone, or in conjunction with a formal surgical clean up. Sincerely, Dr. Latva
