Hello, i was scratched by a stray cat this evening. She is pregnant and a gentle cat and she acts like a domesticated cat because she does not run away when you come close. She is clingy actually and looks clean. I say she is stray bec she just lives in our bldg complex. The scratch is barely there like a needle point size only but it hurts a bit when i poured alcohol on it. I had anti rabies shots last May 2016 i think that was 2 shots only or 3 (dont quite remember) bec i had another set of shots the prev year. My question is do i need to get anti rabies shots again? The clinic where i had my shots in May said if i get bitten/scratched again after 30 days i need to go back and have shots again. Can you please help me on what to do. How long do anti rabies shots last? Do i need to get a booster? Thank you in advance. -Kate

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?
