Tetanus Toxoid Adsorbed 0.5Ml Injection Health Feed

I had an small cut in my left finger. I went for a tetanus toxoid injection within 24 hours of the injury. The doctor asked me to get another tetanus toxoid injection after 20 days. Is it important to get it done? What can happen if I don't go for it?

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.

If you had the complete tetanus vaccinations and the one you received last year was a booster. You don't need any tetanus injection for five years.

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.

Immunisation Against Tetanus

Immunisation Against Tetanus

It is seen that many people still think that tetanus is caused due to injuries by iron objects only. This is a gross misconception. Any injury, where there is a breach in continuity of skin, may it be by any object, thorn prick, animal bite, surgical trauma tetanus may be caused if the injury gets infected by tetanus spores. It is necessary to get complete immunisation by taking 2 doses at a 1-month interval, one booster after 1 year and then boosters every 5 years.

Hi! today morning I hav cut myself with a iron rod. It was not rusted & my cut is not too serious enough. Should I go for a tetanus injection?

An anti-tetanus serum is not required in routine injuries. It is only recommended in an intensively crushed and dirty wound, in which case it is given within the first six hours after the injury. A routine tetanus toxoid is also not necessary if one is previously fully immunised. In case one is not, then the toxoid is administered within the first 24 hours after the injury.

Proviboost syrup 200 ml and proviboost drops 15 ml are same or different? I have to get it for my parrots. Thank you.

Veterinarian,
Both have almost same combination and composition, but the quantity differs in syrup and drops. Ie) if a vitamin is 2 mg in syrup, it will be 0.5 mg in drops. Drops is recommended for birds and pups.
