So just stood on a massive thorn at least two inches. Went through welly & thermal sock , into my foot & had to be pulled out. (it was stuck). I was in a muddy field walking the puppy. So do I need a tetanus?Can't remember having one. Should add generally don't go to the doctors (unlike my dh).
It would be a good idea. I trod on a nail in the garden and within a few hours my foot was very swollen. I went to the local walk-in unit and the wound was cleaned, ex-rayed and dressed. I was also given an anti-tetanus jab. Just to be on the safe side. Tetanus is serious - as Google for the symptoms if you're brave.
