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?

I fell from my bike about 2 months ago and bruised my knee. I had taken a tetanus. The wound was looking to be healing well, it formed a scab and the scab went naturally. But now my wound is like a small bump, which usually has purple to maroon color. Is it a keloid scar? It s itchy around the wound. Anyway to remove it?

I had nail puncture wound and went to the doc. Two days later (today) and got a tetanus shot. Now I have a horrible headach and when I went to the bathroom to have a bowl movement I saw bright red blood on the toilet paper and it looked like I started my period 2 weeks early. So I wiped my vagina and no blood so I wiped my rear again and there was blood. When I got up it looked like a lot of blood but I know it looks worse in water. Now I'm dizzy and my headach is worse. Is this from the tetanus shot? My feces were I guess what you'd call type 1 round and smaller, and they didn't hurt.

22 mo old baby cut foot on old metal footlocker in our house last night. Previously unvaccinated. I am considering taking him in for his Dtap shot, but I have strep throat and he probably will come down with it soon in midst of his tetanus shot reactions. Tetanus shot?
