Hi Natalle ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.
If I were your doctor, I would clean the entry wound with an antiseptic lotion, prescribe for you a tetanus toxoid if not vaccinated, get your Hepatitis B and HIV status done by blood tests, and then decide on vaccination against Hepatitis B. If the HIV status is equivocal, then wait for three months, and repeat the test again.
I have a burning sensation on my face and neck. I also have the feeling of needlespricking my chest and neck
Hi. Have you applied something on your face, that too for the first time. It may be allergic reaction to some local application or drug or some food item.Also, I will like to know if you are diabetic or menopausal at 42.It can simply be sun burn also. Take some oral anti allergic and consult a skin specialist.Thanks.
