Inj TT can be given to such patients but from what you are describing patient either has early cellulitis or a abscess.If the lump is localised and resembles an abscess then I&D will be necessary.But if the whole limb is affected by cellulitis(which is a bacterial infection )then pt will need to be admitted and given iv antibiotics.I suugest a surgeon take a look at the pt to determine the extent of damage.
