Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Yes, we do believe that you should seek medical evaluation of your foot in order to rule out the possibility that you may fractured any of your toes. The cut should also be cleaned and dressed by your doctor to prevent the development of any infections. Please be guided accordingly.
