My daughter has a small cut on the outside edge of her foot, I noticed it 2 days ago and pus came out so I cleaned it and left it. Tonight when I was putting her to bed I checked her foot and yet again it was very tender and pus came out. But I have noticed there is a red line from the cut to the middle of her foot (underneath).
I am worried now as she is only 3. My husband says its just where there is an infection and the foot is trying to clean and heal.
Could someone help me?

    The infection may be spreading just underneath the skin or along the path of a blood vessel. Don’t take any chances. You should see a doctor immediately. The moment a wound becomes infected, even if it seems minor, should not just be treated in the home environment.

    My son had the same exact thing…he stepped on a needle that was in the middle of our dining room floor and it went into hs foot. A Red Line was seen from where the infection was to the middle of his foot. Antibiotics were given for a week.
