Poked by thumbtack at work, squeezed blood out&immediately applied iodine tincture bp, no rust on thumbtack, haven't had tetanus shot, risk of tetanus?
A wound is a wound: Tetanus is possible when any cut on the skin is contaminated by tetanus spores that are all around, predominantly in soils. It doesn't matter what made the cut if the exposure comes after the skin is open. The rusty nail is the classic source because it is on the ground to begin with when people step on it. Even if low risk it serves as a reminder to update your protection. If >10 yrs get the shot ...Read more

Do moles fall off had a small mole on lower leg and it got a lil larger then fell off clear skin left no blood anywhere?
I have a mole between my toes and wanted to know if part of a mole can fall off. It was raised and brown now the lump is flat and dark flesh colored.
Maybe, maybe not.: I suppose it could, but I'm more inclined to believe that the mole could be, in reality, a callus. It is not uncommon for them to be between the toes, mainly because of the potential for the toes to rub against each other. They can cause a small amount of bleeding which would make it look brown and raised. When it comes off, it would be flat and have darker color. To remove all doubt, see a doc. ...Read more

Even if you have them removed they will come back. Try to avoid scratching them in your sleep. You can see a dermatologist and sometimes they may elect to remove them. ...Read more
