A puncture wound is when a sharp object, like a nail, cuts or pierces your child's skin. Because it is deep, it can easily get infected. If your child gets a puncture in his eye, foot, or stomach, call your healthcare provider.
Wash the wound.
Cut off any flaps of skin. They can get in the way of cleaning the wound.
Put on antibiotic ointment and a Band-Aid. This helps keep it from getting infected.
Give pain medicine.
