Does KMnO4 kill Clostridium Tetani? An ancient razor blade droped into a KMnO4 sol. Then I picked and got cut. Chances of Tetanus?
Td vaccine or Tdap . Usually c. Tetani spores can be killed by strong agents like formaldehyde or gluterdehyde.The bacteria is also susceptible to heat. They are usually responsive to penicillin group of antibiotics . So clean the wound thoroughly to reduce bacteria in the wound and make sure have received a tetanus vaccine within the past 5 yrs. If you have done all these then your chances of getting tetanus are low.
No predicting. Physicians would never guess about whether you will get an illness. But, if it has been more than ten years since your last tetanus vaccination you have time to get one now.
