    Good day, sorry about that. It's good you've stopped the bleeding. Depending on how deep the wound is, It might require suturing (sewing), otherwise, clean with spirit and gentian violet (GV), go to a pharmacy and receive tetanus toxoid injection and simple antibiotics, pain reliever & vitamins C & Bco.

    I hope the tetanus injection will not have any side effects as I've heard it has some side effects.

    It is far safer to take the injection than to have tetanus infection. Go ahead, take the injection.

    Hi Dr Anyawu, the toe still hurts and looks a bit brownish. Is this normal? What can I do please.

    Good day. OK, maybe at this point, a doctor should look at it and determine how exactly it is and what should be done. Pls see your doctor in person.
