Hi all Just need a bit of advice on what I should do last week my foot went over on some glass. I ended up at A and E and had four stiches and I am due to get them taken out tomorrow My problem is my toe is so sore I cannot even touch it let lone get the stiches out. I cannot even wear shoes so have been wearing my slippers these last few days I dont know wether to go to A and E because they can numb it. But dont know if rs surgery can do the same I dont want to waste peoples time but honestly dont know what to do its also gone really hot and a bit swollen Thanks in advance KA xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PS hope everyone else is ok

Sounds like you have an infection in the toe. It is better to get it treated as soon as possible as the infection could spread and become far more serious. I would suggest you return to A&E today as an immediate course of the dreaded Antibiotics would seem the best way forward.
