A commonly encountered foot injury in the summer months is a puncture wound. Punctures of the foot always need prompt medical evaluation and treatment. Although they can appear minor on the surface, dirt and debris harboring bacteria can create a deep infection in the foot. Pain, swelling, redness, warmth, and drainage are all signs of potential infection. It is important to deal with these injuries quickly to flush out the wound as soon as possible.
The recommended course of treatment will vary depending on the location, type, and severity of the infection. If you are suffering from a foot infection, please contact our office immediately to ensure that the infection does not spread and is healed as quickly and painlessly as possible.
