Tetanus booster 8 month ago would give you immunity.

Tingling is part of healing due to formation of the scar tissue. It is not a concerning symptoms or sign.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Tetanus booster was 4 years 8 months ago. Is that ok? Concern?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Sorry for it.

I thought you had a tetanus at 4 years ago and than at 8 months (was a comma there!).

Tetanus occurs in contaminated wounds. With clean wounds, tetanus in not likely. With a booster 4 years 8 months ago; immunity do persists. Though it is not optimum.

With your symptoms I do not suspect tetanus.

It is privilege assisting you.

Anything I should look out for?Secondly I have a hematoma on my right knee which is quite swollen and swelling spread above and down leg. It seems my lymph nodes in groin are swollen and under armpit (both on right side only). Armpit right side very sore. My finger injury is right side too. Any connection or concern?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Fever is the only thing you need to look for.

Lymph nodes are our first line of defense and thus get enlarge on inflammation in the draining areas. The finger injury has enlarged the axilla (arm pit) lymph nodes and hematoma at knee has enlarged the groin (inguinal lymph) nodes. Nothing worrisome here.

That is great news. Thanks. Side question - does tetanus come on suddenly or over a few days? I realise symptoms come on from 4-21 days.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Also...I am getting chilling and mild sweating now and then but guess that is more to do with swelling in knee
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 1 year ago

The onset of tetanus is gradual, so it would come in some days. I would not worry about it, though. Chilling and mild sweating can also occur due to slight anxiety as well as due to swelling in knee.
