ok here is my story, last sunday, today is friday, i stepped on a nail. the nail was rusty and dirty and i was wearing my running shoes. the nail got in about an inch. the wound bleed alot the first hour then it gradually stopped. it is not bleeding now and i think it has heal, it feels crusted. there are no signs of infection locally, the wound has heal, swelling is minor ( i can only tell foot is swelled when i wear shoes, the injured foot shoe feels more tight) and there is no pain. i can walk slowly, if i walk fast minor pain arises from wound area. i took a tetanus shot on wednesday just as a precaution measure. should i be worried about a system infection? i have no symptoms that i know of. did the storm already pass? i mean its been almost a week. i thought infections were fast.
i know self diagnosing is wrong but i have no insurance. any comments or questions are welcome
