I recommend you follow up with a podiatrist. Glass doesn’t normally show up on X-ray unless it has lead in it. But in any case, you may need an X-ray of your foot and for the doctor to numb your foot for a thorough evaluation. Even a tiny sliver of glass left in the foot can be painful. If you have any medical conditions such as diabetes or poor circulation, I recommend seeing a podiatrist as soon as possible.

Cutting a diabetic patient’s toenails can be very dangerous. Risk factors such as poor circulation, decreased sensation, and high risk of infection make cutting diabetic nails a job that should be done by a medical professional. I would advise you to have your mom see a podiatrist for treatment. This is a service covered by most insurances every 2-3 months.
