Nasty Wound Not Healing ...

Not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but here it goes. A week ago I saw what seemed to be like a rug burn on my foot, just ahead of my big toe. It seemed to be getting better, till a few days ago. I was walking, and suddenly pain shot through my toe and foot, like it felt like the pain was going through my bone. I took a look and the wound seemed to like deepen, it's lower in my skin, and has become white, and green in the center. My skin is all red around it, and its getting to the point where it hurts to walk. I know I need to get in to a doctor, but if anyone could give me some insight until then, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Re: Nasty Wound Not Healing ...

If you are seeing green in the wound you need medical attention IMMEDIATELY. That is infection and could be getting serious.

Please, seek medical attention. Good luck!!
