The Cause Of Pain In The Soles Of The Feet After Being Scratched?
Good afternoon, I want to ask you about the symptoms of tetanus. The story is one month ago my wife’s feet were scratched with zinc or an iron roof and the wound was healed, but now the soles of her feet are scratched, she says it hurts, is that a symptom of tetanus or something else. …?
Tetanus is a disease characterized by spasms due to a bacterial infection called Clostridium tetani. These bacteria attack nerve parts through dirty open wounds, for example in nail puncture wounds, injuries, burns or bitten by animals.
There are several types of tetanus, including systemic tetanus, local tetanus, cephalic tetanus and neonatal tetanus. Symptoms of systemic tetanus or tetanus generally will appear 7 days after the injury. The most often stiffened muscles include jaw, neck, shoulders, stomach, arms and thighs. Muscle rigidity can also occur around the wound, this condition is called local tetanus. In addition to getting a dirty wound, tetanus is also at risk for people who have never received a tetanus vaccine or who have not gotten a tetanus vaccine in the last 10 years.
However, pain in the soles of the feet can be caused by several conditions including:
imperfect wound healing
habit of standing for too long
sprained or strained muscles
use of high heels
gout arthtritis or a buildup of uric acid crystals
To reduce pain, you can advise your wife to compress your feet with ice, rest your legs for a while while lying down and put your feet in a higher position or if the pain is disturbing you should consult a doctor.
so hopefully useful
