Just got a puncture on my foot. *headdesk*

Anything I should be doing to clean it?  I'm soaking it in Epsom Salts right now . . .what else can I do?  The puncture isn't deep, I stepped on my kid's Eiffel Tower keychain, it definately hurt, it's pointy.  It didn't really bleed, looks a bit like a red blood blister.  Thoughts?  Tetanus scares the crap out of me.  *chanting one in 10 million, one in 10 million*  o.O

Just think of the millions of people who stepped on Eiffel Tower keychains, and didn't get tetanus. winky.gif

 

I am impressed with your 1 in 10 million chant. I did the math, and you are correct.

I stepped on a nail that almost went through my entire foot... a dirty rusty old nail... on my grandma's farm.  I did get a tetanus booster for THAT.  However, I probably wouldn't worry so much about a household object like a key chain.

Tetanus lives in anaerobic environments, like a nail that had been buried in the yard.

Apply neosporin and continue your day smile.gif
