Patient :I stood on broken glass yesterday and I have two fairly deep lacerations on the side of my toe next to my big toe, and one on the bottom of the same toe. The bottom cut is noticeably wider than the other. I don't think there is glass remaining inside. It bled a lot, and is still bleeding now. I can't walk on that foot. Why is the skin around the deeper cut white? And why does my toe feel tingly and numb?
