My son was cut today by rusty barbed wire. He is an adult, does not know when he had his last tetanus shot, and does not have insurance. He washed the wound and soaked it for a half hour and applied peroxide. He also applied lavender and peppermint essential oils. It is now red, purple and hurting. How long can he wait without getting a tetanus shot and what symptoms should he watch for?
