I cut scrotum with rusty razor while shaving i got my tetanus shot 5-9 months ago i washed it out with soap and water, hydrogen peroxide too. What now?

Next time you feel the need to shave--spring for new blades. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Soap not the answer: Acne is a major chronic disease that in spite of what anybody may have told you is not the result of your diet or your poor hygiene. Topical benzoyl peroxide is the only thing you can buy yourself that can do much. Failing this, get with your physician.
