I work for Dish Network as an installer. I stepped on a nail about two days ago. It went through my boot and into my foot. The nail was approx. 3". I went to the hospital where they pulled the nail out and gave me a tetnus booster and an Antibiotic IV due to the rust on the nail. Im still out of work and on two different antibiotics and a mild pain killer. I cannot walk or put any weight on my foot. I have an appoinment for the doctor on monday to check on the infection. Take my advice just go to the doctor. I have a phobia of doctors and needles but the pain is alot so its worth it.

The first thing you should do is get a tetanus jab. It could be septic or infected.
