I got a cut from a nail could it be infected?
I was walking and I stabbed my finger on a nail hanging on a fence it rally hurt Its kinda deep
It helps if you've had a tetanus shot recently.
Any flesh wound will get infected unless treated with the right medicine.
if you leave it alone and put a bandage on it. It might be fine, but just don'tput anything else than the bandage.
Was it a rusty nail? If it was rusty you need to have your cut checked because you'll need a tetanus shot so that you don't get a debilitating infection.
Have you had a tetanus shot in the last ten years? If yes I'd just watch for red, swelling, and nasty stuff coming out. If you haven't had one you immune system really digs those shots.unless it changed its every 10
You should make sure you have a tetanus shot or have had one in the last 10 years and see a dr to get some antibiotics.
It could be but we don't know if it is.
If it was a clean nail don't worry about it.
It would be an infection if the nail is rusted.
Hope you have had a tetanus shot. You get one in school and should have a booster every 7-10 years.
Yes it could be infected but not necessarily by tetanus germ. A wash with water and soap or any household antiseptic like Dettol. Leave open.It is nice to seek medical advice since every one talks tetanus.Very few modern day doctors have seen tetanus.It takes on average 2 weeks from injury for tetanus to develop.It also takes 2 weeks on average for tetanus toxoid from injection to protect the body.In my opinion giving the toxoid is like a counter attack on bush guerrillas who have caused havoc and in response heavy machinery, navy and air force are called.
