    If you see the nail during the daytime, check to see if it has rust on it. Visit your doctor if your toe is still bleeding from the time you stepped on the nail to make sure you didn't get any diseases from it.

    I would clean it with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide about twice a day for a couple of day. If it starts looking really red and irritated, then I would go to the doctor just to make sure.
