How could I tell if I still have broken glass in my foot?
So stupidly I walked across a crowded bar in bare feet (don’t ask) and inevitably trod on broken glass. My drunken self didn’t want to inconvenience anyone by asking for a bandaid so I bled all over the floor instead (smart) til a staff member noticed and cleaned me up and put a bandaid on for me. They looked for any pieces left first but they obviously weren’t a medical professional, and though I couldn’t feel anything still in there, I was still drunk at this stage.
The next day it didn’t hurt much and I walked on it fine with just a little ouchies, I put a new bandaid on and it all seemed fine. But this was a week ago now and while the place where the glass actually cut is fairly healed over, and just walking doesn’t hurt, applying direct pressure to the cut spot hurts, like if my flip flop gets skewed and the cut presses on the part where the straps connect to the base it hurts quite a lot. And if I poke it it seems to hurt all around the actual little cut part.
It doesn’t look infected at all… is it just still healing or should I be worried that a small piece might have gotten deep in there before the skin healed over?
Sure I could go to the doctor but I don’t want to make a big deal out of it if it’s just still sore cause it was a deep cut and still healing. I don’t know how long these things take, but am a little paranoid.
