Can I get blood poisoning from toe infections?

Yes. Sepsis does happen from toe infection. If and when the infection gets into the joints of your toes, since they are highly vascular, you increase the chance of sepsis or infection spreading through your blood. So see you doctor or podiatrist as soon as possible for antibiotic treatment and evaluation. You may need IV antibiotics and hospitalization if the infection is severe.
