Unlike a cut, a puncture wound does not typically result in profuse or excessive bleeding and although painful, may look harmless as the skin around the wound simply closes. But puncture wounds carry a risk of infection and if left unattended can result in serious complications.

Injuries sustained by stepping on a nail that punctures through a shoe are especially prone to infection. If the injury is caused by stepping on a nail or a shard of glass that's been exposed to the elements, it is a good idea to consult a physician who may recommend a tetanus shot or booster.

A bite from a household pet or another person that results in a puncture wound should be considered and treated as serious injury. If the bleeding is heavy or the item that caused the wound appears unsanitary, thoroughly clean the injured area with mild anti-bacterial soap and water and seek professional medical assistance as soon as possible.


Otherwise, follow these steps:

  • Stop the bleeding. Apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth or bandage. If bleeding persists after several minutes of pressure, seek emergency assistance.
  • Clean the wound. Rinse the wound with clear water. Use tweezers cleaned with alcohol to remove small, superficial particles. If debris remains embedded, see your doctor. Clean the area around the wound with soap and a clean cloth.
  • Apply an antibiotic. After you clean the wound, apply a thin layer of an antibiotic cream or ointment.
  • Cover the wound.Bandages can help keep the wound clean and keep harmful bacteria out.
  • Change the bandage regularly.Do so at least daily or whenever it becomes wet or dirty.
  • Watch for signs of infection. See your doctor if the wound doesn't heal or if you notice any redness, drainage, warmth or swelling.
