1 Answer:

Hello Rizani, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Tetanus is a disease caused by the bacterium Clostridium tetani. These bacterial spores can be found in dust, soil and animal feces, and these spores are very strong and can last a long time outside the human body. A person can be infected with tetanus if:

suffered from contaminated wounds of soil, feces, or saliva containing tetanus bacterial spores
stab wounds due to dirty objects, such as nails
suffered extensive burns
suffered an injury that caused the destruction of deep skin tissue
injured in the presence of dead tissue (for example in diabetic feet)

Basically superficial wounds rarely cause tetanus. But if indeed the chicken spurs contain soil or feces contaminated with bacterial spores, then the risk of tetanus remains. One of the best tetanus prevention is to do basic tetanus vaccination and booster vaccination. Basic tetanus vaccination is usually given as a child.


For initial management, immediately clean your wound with running water until it is clean (no need to be rubbed too hard). Make sure there is no dirt or dust on the wound. Afterwards you can go to the doctor to be sure whether you really need an antitethane injection or not based on your vaccination history and the depth of your wound.
