Post Cut on Toe

I noticed a small cut on my toe do to the nail of the toe next too it. I watch my feet pretty carefully, but I was wondering if I should do anything extra other than a bandage. Has anyone had this problem?- Greg

hi Gle, I watch all wounds on my skin espically cat scrathes. I have 5 cats. I can tell you a trick that my help its natural medicine but has done wonders for me after 30 years of diabetes my sores scrathes wounds dont help.The only thing i have found and you might think i am crazy, is put hydrogen peroxiode on it then take a capsule of garlic and break it open pouring the garlic on the sore. This is especially good for infections it pulls them right out. All i can say say is dont knock it till you try it
Good Luck

I will try that next time. This healed pretty fast. I used those bandages that have a antibacterial medication on them. I eat a lot of garlic. My wife buys it and uses it at almost every meal. I used to take the dried tablets, but now I get a great deal through my food. Thanks susie
