Another T.T. Is given to prevent from tetnus for a longer period even if you get injury in that period. However the 2nd dose is usually given 4-6 weaks after and the third dose after 6-8 months.

Respected Sir, My mother is diabetic patient since 2007. Sugar level is kept in check by dietary means and medicines. Very recently (some 25 to 30 days back) a small circular wound was noticed on her foot. She had taken a tetanus toxoid injection for that and within two days the wound was healed. But today again similar wound has appeared on the foot. Taking another tetanus toxoid injection is advisable or any other medication is required?

No worries about you Make your mother a dietary table. Increase the amount of vitamin C in the food. Take care of the feet. Wear soft cloth shoes. Make a habit of stroll after eating food. Pranayama is done in the morning in the morning. Include high fiber in the food. Give breakfast on time. Always take care of the feet carefully. Your mother will be healthy.

Are the duo combo test (antigen + antibody) effective after 8 weeks of exposure and (before 12 weeks)? Can tetanus toxoid taken 2 months back be a reason for false positive/ negative? Thank you.

Generally speaking: 4th generation -- conclusive after 4 weeks (some say at 6). 3rd generation -- conclusive after 8 weeks (some would say 6+ weeks) 2nd generation -- conclusive after 10 - 12 weeks. The tests that could be deemed conclusive are 3rd generation tests and certainly 4th generation tests at 8 weeks. A 3rd generation test for the most part has to be done by a lab. All fda approved rapid tests are either 2nd generation tests or perform like 2nd generation tests in actual practice, even though they claim to be 3rd generation tests on paper. (recent exception might be the 4th generation test approved by the fda, but this is not widely used, yet.) a positive test is conclusive at any period (though you'd check it by testing again with a different technology) but the negatives are more problematic. The later the test, the more reliable but a very few people remain negative for many months. At eight weeks a negative test has about a 97% reliability of truly being negative.

Hello doctor, 7 days ago I took a tetanus toxoid injection in the buttock region. After 2 days I started to feel pain when pressure is applied and the area slowly gets stiff and hard. The area is somewhat swollen and redden. Can I get benefit if I use thrombophob gel topically over the area or you give other medications. Please help me.

Yes you can apply thrombophob. Or you can apply ice over it you will be better. You can consult me through Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment and further guidance.

If it was Td then after 10 yrs but in between after 28 weeks should take TDAP. If it was only tet toxoid then next after 6 weeks then after 28 weeks TDAP
