The fish hook barbed into the finger cortex, and the wound was very small. A little blood came out hard, and then the wound could not be seen. But the hook was in the cortex at that time. Does tetanus need to be injected in this situation
Hello, tetanus is anaerobic. The wound in the finger cortex of the fishhook is relatively small. Generally, there is no need to inject tetanus. Generally, squeeze the blood and disinfect it with Iodophor or alcohol. The impact is not great. Just continue to observe. Generally, tetanus will not be infected. wish you the best of health
If the wound is deep, it needs to be injected with tetanus. If the wound is shallow, it is not necessary to inject tetanus. Tetanus is anaerobic bacteria. It is easy to come on in an anoxic environment. It needs thorough debridement after hooking the finger. Don't touch water in the near future to avoid infection.
This kind of deep and narrow wound is easy to cause anoxic environment, so it is safer to inject tetanus. At the same time, clean the wound with hydrogen peroxide and then wipe it with Iodophor. Keep the wound clean and dry and avoid getting wet.
