Re: Infections - Foot
Yup. It could just take time for it to show up on the outside. If you do have an infection, your foot will start to swell up around the puncture site, the area will become red and inflamed, hot to the touch. You will also likely start to run a low grade fever. Personally, I would get myslef into a doctor. Only because rusty nails are just nothing to mess around with....and it is hurting..which is an indication that you might be having some problems...better be safe than sorry.
