    Cut finger on chhese grater?

    Hi I just cut my finger on a cheese grater!
    It didnt draw any blood but it stings.
    I googled and all sorts of things came up.. Infections happening from it etc.
    I'm 19 and can't remember my last tetanus shot! I don't think I've had one in ten years at all... I'm now scared ill get am infection or tetanus and die from it.
    It stings but no blood was drawn :(

    If no blood was drawn it wasn't that deep right? I'm now scared over tetanus. Google said to get a tetanus jab after a cut with cheese grater... It wasn't rusty though.

    It no longer stings either and I don't have any antiseptic

    Emma it will be fine..I have done this loads of time. Just give your finger a wash and if it isn't bleeding just leave it..it will be fine!

    With any cut, you have to be careful from bacteria getting inside, but obvs a deep cut, and as yours didn't even bleed yours probably took the hard layer off your skin, if you're really worried wash it thoughorly and put a plaster on it.

    Skippy
    Forgot about it all today... Until after work I remembered the funny feeling was from cut and had forgot to cover it and I work in a factory.
    A cut that didn't bleed can't get infected right?
    Or can it :S
    Havnt had a tetanus jab for over ten years I'm sure of it...


    Anyway probably being irrational as per usual again ..

    I am sure it will be fine. If you had all your booster jabs when you were at school you shouldn't need a tetanus, you will be protected now. They used to say every 10 years but not now.

    Pretty sure I did. At 15 I had the mmr booster and other people said they had two jabs m,r and tetanus but I only had the one?

    You wouldn't get tetanus from a scrape on the cheese grater anyway so I wouldn't worry.
