Stepped on nail - pain is now increasing!

Living remote on island... have to rely on ferry to take me to the mainland with very limited window of time.

Stepped on nail about 4 to 5 hours ago.

Pain is increasing... it now feels like there is a stake driven into my foot.  I rinsed thoroughly.  

It has been about 5 years since last tetenus shot.  

I have only one leg remaining... I am worried.

Thanks.

Tom
