Posted by PPE prevents trip to the ED (as ),
Was not wearing safety boots (yes my wife told me to put them on) and kicked my toe onto the end of a date palm frond barb! ! ! Yep it hurt, and a small piece broke of just under the skin. Unable to remove it with tweezers so off to the ED I went. I only waited 15 minutes. I only had a 4mm piece in my toe, but still got the full work over. Toe block, removed barb, tetanus injection, dressing, script for antibiotics if needed and some pain relief to take home. The doctor was very professional and efficient. His advice, wear my safety boots next time!
