Q
What do I do about glass inside of my toe?

A

If you have glass inside your toe, you need to have your foot examined immediately. Puncture wounds may not seem serious at first, especially if they don’t bleed too much when they occur. However, they can cause significant discomfort and complications. In addition to toe pain, they can become infected quite easily—especially if the glass is stuck deep in your foot. It might already be infected if the wound is swollen or reddened, and if moving your toes is uncomfortable. We will need to remove the glass with sterile tools and treat any infection to prevent additional problems.

If you’re concerned you have a broken piece of glass inside a toe, don’t wait for the wound to get infected to seek help. Contact Dallas Podiatry Works for more information about puncture wounds or an appointment to take care of your injury today. Use our website contact form or call either of our offices to reach us: for the Dallas office, call (972) 566-7474; for the Plano location, call (972) 943-3323.
