Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. There is no correltaion between tetanus shot, swollen left clavicle and strep throat. Tetanus shot is not related to your symptoms. The swelling along the clavicle may also be due to swelling of lymph nodes. For ascertaining the real cause you need to get it examined. So kindly see your doctor to find out the real cause. Wish you good health.

Hi Francisca ,
welcome to the health care mwgic forum,there is no such relation between the parts u mentioned ,thing is that the clavicle swelling might be due to some injury i suppose,a bad bruise but since you are on antibiotic it will take care of the swelling additionally take combiflam which will reduse the pain.
get well soon !

i have strep throat says my doctor as i have several white spots on my left tonsil, and i have the symptoms of strep. However my back left gums near my wizdom tooth and cheeck tissue is very swollen and it pusses near the tooth when i apply pressure. it hurts when i swallow as my gums and cheek have to move, and i dont really have a sore throat.. all of the pain is coming from the gums and cheek surrounding my back tooth. Is there something else wrong with me? or is it just apart of strep?

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.
