The day before yesterday, my hand was scratched by an iron sheet and shed a little blood. Because I was at work, I washed it with clean water. I had a day of hygiene yesterday, and today I found that the wound is a little red and swollen. I don't know if there is a big problem? Is redness and swelling because the hands always wash their hands or wash things? Shouldn't you be infected with tetanus? I sprayed it with Iodophor today.
The wound scratched by iron wire is relatively shallow and will not be infected with tetanus. It is normal that local swelling and pain belong to soft tissue injury. The time is too short. It is also possible to take a rest to avoid getting wet or take some drugs to promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis. Don't worry too much. You don't have tetanus.
There's no big problem. You should not touch water in this place, because the performance in the process of wound recovery is mainly to prevent bacterial infection. The probability of your infection with tetanus is small, because the wound is also relatively shallow, and now it has basically been healed
Generally speaking, the wound is very superficial. If the dressing is changed in place at that time, it will not be infected with tetanus and break the cold. The formation reason is mostly because of the deep wound, and anaerobic infection will appear. It is recommended to keep the wound clean and hygienic. Change the dressing with iodophor every day and apply erythromycin ointment or baiduobang externally.
