How should I handle a minor cut on my foot?

To treat a minor wound, first wash your hands with soap and water, then cleanse the wound with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly, pat dry, and apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment with a cotton swab and an adhesive bandage. If you see no appreciable improvement in a treated wound within 24 hours, consult your doctor or podiatrist immediately.
