Rusty Nail

July 16th, 2009 by admin

I stepped on a rusty nail today, do I need to go to the doctor?

I stepped on a rusty nail earlier today, and I am wondering if I need to go to the doctor to get a tetanus shot. It did pierce the skin a little bit and a little dot of blood came out. I then attempted to clean and disinfect it with an alcohol pad. My last tetanus shot was roughly 2 years ago.

Hmm...

Tetanus shots tend to last 7-10 years sometimes, so you should be fine...But if I was you, I'd go to the doctor just to be safe...Because having something pierce through your skin is a big deal.

If it's untreated or if someone didn't have a tetanus shot it can lead to a lot of diseases, such as lockjaw.

But since you had a tetanus shot about 2 years ago, you should be fine.
