is this tetanus or stress? ive been having a fear of tetanus lately from a small scratch as I was too busy to wash it. 5 days now im having muscle spasms help?
Hello dear, in general tetanus may develop from 7 days to several months after the injury. So if the spasms are increasing, it is advisable to consult to a physician. If you have taken tetanus vaccine within last five years then there is no need of further vaccination and the risk is minimal, however, if not then single dose of tetanus vaccine is still advisable.
