When I was fishing, I didn't notice that I was hooked into the skin of my fingers by the fish hook. There was basically no bleeding, but I tried to squeeze out a trace of blood at that time. The wound is so small that you can't see it, and the hook doesn't rust when you look carefully. Does this situation need tetanus
In this case, there should be no need to break the cold. First, the wound is very shallow, and the fishhook should not rust. It's not a condition for tetanus. Not all wounds will be infected with tetanus, so you don't have to worry. The wound can be disinfected with Iodophor.
After being caught by the fishhook, the patient needs to carefully observe the specific situation of the wound. If it is only a simple skin injury, after disinfection, it is usually not necessary to inject tetanus, and local disinfection is OK. If the wound is deep. It is easy to be infected with tetanus. It is recommended that patients go to the hospital to inject tetanus and antitoxin within 24 hours to achieve preventive effect
In order to be safe, it is best to inject tetanus antitoxin. Although the wound is small, it is also easy to cause tetanus infection, especially in the wild environment, and the water body is also polluted
There is no need to bandage the part. The exposed person has no problem. Disinfect it with Iodophor and apply erythromycin ointment or baiduobang to prevent inflammation. There are no other suggestions. Generally speaking, there is no big problem
