I sliced my foot about two months ago on metal

Patient : I sliced my foot about two months ago on metal when I accidentally kicked a hole through a wall while practicing karate in my room. The metal was inside the wall. it was a deep cut and I irresponsibly decided not to get stitches but to hold it together with butterfly bandages and use alcohol on it. Now here I am with a healed wound, but it still hurts and is turning black.... what's going on and can it be extremely harmful?

Nothing to worry. You can take analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Hope your query get answered. Wishing you a good health. Take care
