I just recently stepped on a nail last night.
I didn't feel it go in, I just felt like my foot was hot and in a natural reaction, I started flinging my foot until the nail was out. (the nail had been hammered into a board)
I don't know if it was rusty or not, but at this point, I can't tell if it's infected. I can't walk on it...at all. I can't even put pressure on it. So for now, I just hop.
Any kind of answer would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I'm up to date with my tetanus shot. I called my doctor, she said I was fine, but that I should definitely get it looked at.
But give me your input before I go.

Ouch! I would clean it first with some antiseptic liquid which will sting like crazy and then cover it with a band aid. But if it didn't improve I would get it checked out at the doc.
I stepped on a screw driver once in bare feet and it went through one side of my toe but fortunately it healed up pretty quick.0
