About three days ago I stepped on a nail while lifting some boards outside. The puncture was really shallow, only the point of the nail went in. Anyways I went to the bathroom soon after and washed it with soap and water then rinsed with alcohol and hydrogenporoxide. I am 20 years old and haven't had a tetanus booster in probably 8 years. I'm worried that I have gotten tetanus from this because I have been having tmj and a stiff upper neck like were it cone ts to the back of the head. I have had tmj before when I get stressed out so I'm confused whether it's my anxiety or tetanus.
Well it's has been 5 days no since my injury and the symptoms have not progressed at all I am starting to believe it is my anxiety causing the issue because by now my jaw should have completely locked and muscles across my body should be spasming. The wound has healed with no pain or swelling/redness, I washed it everyday till till it closed completely. It was very small and shallow puncture and I let it breath out everynight, I heard tetanus does not grow with oxygen, is that correct? Anyways should I be worried still about contracting this horrible disease?
