In brief: Puncture Wound

Die..... If it gets out of control.
..Yes. I hope you would not let it get that far.. Puncture wounds many times are followed by infections. And, in the foot....That could be a disaster. It is always better to see a physician, get examined.....And get an antibiotic and maybe a tetnus shot.....Always better safe than sorry !
