I have stepped on a badge pin that was rusty. Am i in danger of getting tetanus? I had my tetanus injection 2 years ago im 15 years old male. Thanks Doctor.
Hello. Thank you for your question. The tetanus vaccine you received two years ago still covers you. You are up to date. It is unlikely you will develop tetanus. Apply an antibiotic ointment to the puncture 3 times a day to avoid skin infection.
 
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.
