Soak it in hot/warm salt water. It will draw the infection out. I used to step on nails and cut my feet a lot when I was young. Grandma had me soak my feet with table salt in the water. I healed fast

Definitely see a doctor (as a type 1 diabetic) you really cannot afford to get an infection, foot care is essential in the well being of a diabetic!

I don't know about you but the thought of an infection and/or a possible amputation of any sort absolutely frightens me.
I still have mobility problems, and trying to get used to having bone fusion surgery on the bones in my left foot is harder than I ever thought it would be.
So take my advice, go see a doctor as soon as possible!
