Sore lumps on labia after shaving with rusty razor. Could this be tetanus infection?
so the other day i was shaving my genital area and i noticed yesterday that 2 big sore bumps appeared on my labia. they dont look like shaving bumbs and today they were scabbed over. the razor i used had a small rusty spot on it so i was worried i might have a tetanus infection.
Hi, Welcome to HCM. Tetanus infection is caused when there is a severely contaminated wound usually a crush injury. Your wound seems to be infected with staphylococci which cause localized infections. Application of an antibacterial cream over the bumps for 3-4 days will suffice. Avoid old razors while shaving to avoid infection. Thanks.

Hello, I am in the middle of a serious anxiety/panic attack as I just became aware that I may have a tetanus infection. I am a senior at Clemson University and to be honest the apartment where I resided in the past four months was extremely unsanitary. One toilet was clogged for nearly two months which I now know could have bred bacterial spores that cause tetanus infections. I cut myself shaving around 1 1/2 months ago. I was out of razors and used a razor that had been sitting in the bathroom with the clogged up toilet I mentioned above. I did clean the razor with rubbing alcohol before use however I had an open wound on my face for a while.. About a week. For about a month now I have been feeling extremely irritable, experiencing lockjaw symptoms, been short of breath, had fevers on and off, heart palpitations, and I have noticed that when I smile my face contorts into what one would call a sardonic smile. Am I going to die? Please let me know your opinion
I shaved with a rusty razor , about a month ago and now one side of my jaw joint is sore and tight. Could I have tetanus? Or just a coincidence? I did go to a dentist to see if it was an infection from a tooth. He said no most Lilly not after taking X-rays. Now im freaking out!
The symptoms of tetanus are due to Encapsulated Clostridium tetani. The growth of Clostridium tetani in a wound. Hemolysins produced by Clostridium tetani. An exotoxin produced by Clostridium tetani. All of these.
My son is diagnosed with HCP Porphyria, one of the acute Porphyrias, and the school is telling us he needs a tetanus shot to stay in school. My research shows a link between tetanus shot and potentially inducing a Porphyria attack. AT 13 he s never had one (he s genetically diagnosed because of me) and don t want to induce one. Should he get the shot.
Greetings! Brother, I was bitten by dog on 14th January 2014 in the morning around 6. a.m. Around 6.45 a.m I went to clinic and they wiped it. Then around 10 a.m on the day I was given a tetanus injection and started taking antibiotic for a week. Evening around 5 p.m I was given a anti rabies vaccination. I was given anti rabies vaccination for 14 days consequatively around nipple and then after 10 days 1 injection then 10 days after 1 injection and after 10 days last injection. So total 17 injections around the nipple. That means, January - 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27,\ Feb 6, 16, 26 dates I was given a anti rabies vaccination. On 16th Feb. I had a food poison due to the juice (awakadu) which I was taken outside. Again I was given anti biotic. I completed it. After food poison I feel in my mouth I am getting saliva. Doctor checked my blood they told I have a 108 sugar and 225 is a colostratral. Yet dog is alive and owner of the dog says it is in a good condition. Can you please tell me if possible the reasons of saleva I am getting it. I am also not feeling hungry. If time permits kindly reply brother. With respects, moses

I got a tetanus shot on right side hip yesterday. Today i can feel pain which is ok. But i can also feel pain in the groin region, the exact spot is where the inguinal hernia is present. This pain was previously not there. Is it temporary or a muscle swelling because of tetanus shot ? I pains only if i try to press it. I can walk comfortably though.
