When would you go to the ER for a puncture?
While I was at dr with hubby today and he was with a sitter B stepped on a nail which reportedly came out clean. I got home within minutes and we washed it in soapy water and soaked it a few times through the eve with some salt and soap but now its pretty swollen. Not inflamed but puffy. Its on the outside of the bottom of his foot toward the heel/ankle. My dd says that due to his reaction and the swelling she would take him. I have never had an issue getting a puncture to heal on myself or my own kids but I am doubting myself now. Maybe I should have taken him?
Web MD says to do what I already did and will do.
*edited for errors, i really should proofread more:(
How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong. Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these. GeorgeWashingtonCarver
