yesterday evening i fell down from a bus and my right arm is wounded, near the elbow.the top part is completely red while the bone part has a cut which was bleeding yesterday.the wound was caused due to scratching on road.do i need a tetanus injection?
Is their any oral dose for tetanus?i have no fever but the wound is continously paining since yesterday.
I applied antibiotic soframycin(framycetin) today but that gives me feeling of burning.
the area is very hot and red in colour.
what should i do?
