Cut my hand with a kitchen knife on tuesday. Today my throat is very tight and sore and it hurts when I swallow. Do I have tetanus or another infection related to the cut?

Not tetanus. You have up to 72 hours after the cut to get a tetanus shot. But even after that cut off, it can be helpful. Tetanus takes a while to develop, so assume it was tuesday 3 days ago, it's not tetanus. But i can't rule out some other infection. Most skin infections won't cause throat symptoms. It's probably a sore throat completely unrelated to the cut. Go get checked for the throat a tetanus shot. Read more...

Chuckle. Difficult to imagine the correlation of the events. The strep should have been diagnosed as high probability by lab or by exam with throat exudate (pus) and proper medicine given. There is no such thing as stronger medicine but there is proper medicine by sensitivity. I am sure you are thinking of tetanus. I think part of the problem is anxiety. Relax a little. Read more...
