Stepped on nail. Will I have blood disease? Have discolored foot. I'm facing?

Hello, about 5 or 6 days ago i stepped on a nail. The nail was outside and it may have been rusty. The people I was with at that moment told me that I can get an infection or that possibly someone with a blood disease ( like Hepatitis or HIV ) could have stepped on that same nail before I did. I ve been so paranoid of the different possibilities since I ve stepped on that nail. There has been no swelling or discoloring on my foot , everything seems normal except for the fact that the possibilities of what can happen is always on my mind, making me nervous. PLEASE help me. Should i get tested for anything? Should I get a shot? Should I see my doctor? It s hard to sleep while you re worrying about something so Please help, Thank You.

Hi, Shania,
thanks for query.
Nothing to worry, do not be panic.
Go for injection tetanus toxoid and forget it.
If you find some infection then go for short antibiotic medicne course.
Ok and bye.
