Paramedic Girl
Make sure you clean that area really well and get yourself in for a tetnus shot right away.

Go, go, go. Don't stand here talking to us dorks. Go to the doc. You gotta get a shot and get it properly cleaned. However, since the docs are closed now, you can wait until the morning and make an apt. If you go to the ER at this time of night you will be in there all night. But go FIRST THING in the AM. Don't want you getting lock jaw.

Rusty nail = possible tentanus and you haven't gotten a shot yet you should go to your nearest urgent care or ER to get a booster. You should also get a x-ray to be sure that the nail didn't puncture the bone. Don't blow it off and get it checked out soon.

As the others stated you need a tetanus shot if you haven't had one in the last 5 years (applies to a dirty wound like yours).

Otherwise, soak your foot in a betadine solution for at least 15 minutes, and scrub the puncture site with the betadine.

Apply antibiotic ointment to the site after soaking it.

Monitor the site for redness, warmth, pain, etc.... all indicate you need an antibiotic.

Yes go to the doctor and get yourself a tetanus shot.

Clean the wound with soap and water and then an antiseptic. Apply some first aid cream (Neosporine) and bandage. Next, contact your doctor because you should get a tetanus shot (unless you have had one recently). Depending on how bad wound is the doctor my also prescribe antibiotics.

yes go to the doctor straight away there's that new infection that make part of your body fall off called rustitess

clean the area real good and make sure you have had a tetnus shot

You gotta go get a tetanus shot asap.
