I was bitten by my cat about 17 days ago. Didnt get a tetanus shot until about 1&1/2 wks. Later the site looks fine. But im having burning. And discomfort in my spine. Do you think it could be the tetanus bacteria.?
Unlikely, but...: If you had any prior tetanus vaccines, the odds of contracting tetanus is slim. But, if you are having spasms & stiffness in your jaw muscles, neck muscles, or abdominal muscles; or, if you're having difficulty swallowing--this would be worrisome. Painful body spasms, lasting for several minutes, triggered by minor occurrences, such as a draft, loud noise, physical touch or light, then beware. ...Read more

Long story short, my brothers cat attacked me and I have more than a few scratches on my lower arm. Do I need to see a doctor for a tetanus shot?
No; however...: The tetanus spores are surprisingly common in our environment but tetanus is rare; tetanus can not grow in an environment with oxygen so the only wounds that have a risk of tetanus are deep puncture wounds. Scratches will never cause tetanus, But you might get other bacterial infections like Cat Scratch Fever (Bartonella). Clean the wound well & watch for infection.See https://tinyurl.com/khla9r6 ...Read more
