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?
