Yes. Sepsis does happen from toe infection. If and when the infection gets into the joints of your toes, since they are highly vascular, you increase the chance of sepsis or infection spreading through your blood. So see you doctor or podiatrist as soon as possible for antibiotic treatment and evaluation. You may need IV antibiotics and hospitalization if the infection is severe.

If I have an infection like an ear or bacterial infection can I still donate blood?

Not now. If you have an acute infection, you should not donate blood until the infection is completely resolved. Here is a link to blood donation eligibility from the red cross website http://www. Redcrossblood. Org/donating-blood/eligibility-requirements/eligibility-criteria-topic There are other reasons why you would be ineligible, talk with the blood donation staff about all restrictions.
No, you should. Wait until after your infection is cleared before you donate blood. Your body needs your resources to fight the infection, and you would not want to donate blood with antibiotics in the system or worse, bacteria in the blood itself. One week after you are done healing is enough time. Thank you for donating blood and giving the gift of life to someone in need! Blessings to you.
No. If you have a systemic infection, you should definitely not donate blood. If you only have an otitis externa, or external ear infection, you may be able to donate blood. Please see your primary care provider, and be sure to discuss with the blood donation staff any concerns you may have.
DetectionOfInfection. According to the American Red Cross, 'If you have a fever or an active infection, wait until the infection has resolved completely before donating blood.' And if you are taking antibiotics for it, 'The reason for antibiotic use must be evaluated to determine if the donor has a bacterial infection that could be transmissible by blood.' If not, then a day or so after taking the last dose of antibiotic.
