Tetanus is a serious bacterial infection that tends to affect the nervous system, causing muscle contractions, particularly in the neck and jaw muscles. This is the reason the condition is often referred to as lockjaw. The signs or symptoms tend to appear in about 10 days from the time the body is infected. The symptoms include spasms and stiffness in neck and jaw muscles, difficulty in swallowing, stiffness in abdominal muscles and painful body spasms that get triggered due to loud noise or physical touch.
HOW IS TETANUS DIAGNOSED?
The condition is diagnosed by a physical examination. A general physician will check immunization history to confirm diagnosis as lab tests don't always help.
HOW IS TETANUS TREATED?
The treatment of Tetanus involves antibiotics, cleaning the wound, Tetanus vaccine and Tetanus Immune Globulin (TIG) to neutralize the toxins that the bacteria have created in the body.
