What treatment do you give for someone who stepped on a rusty nail?

I need foot treatment, I stepped on a rusty nail.

If it is still in the foot then of course remove it unless it is in too far than you would go to the emergency room. If it is not in there then clean the wound. Go to your doctor and make sure to get a tetanus shot.

Go to the emergency room immediately and get a tetanus shot. They can also check for fragments left inside the foot.

You need sutures for the wound, sterilization of the injury, and probably a tetanus shot if you have not had the vaccine in the past 10 years.

What you need is to go to the doctor and get a tetanus shot. The rusty nail could cause an infection in your foot and cause big problems. It's best to prevent it before it starts.
