DON'T STEP ON THAT NAIL!
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


For generations we have believed the old wive's tale that says if you step on a rusty nail that you will either need a tetanus shot or your will suffer from a tetanus infection.

Fortunately, this is not at all true. The fact of the matter is that simply stepping on a nail doesnít give you tetanus, but it is the type of injury that will put you more at risk than other injuries.

A puncture wound is the most likely to become infected with tetanus because bacteria can be trapped in the wound as it heals from the top down to the bottom instead of from the bottom up.

So, as long as you have your tetanus shot, youíll probably be just fine if you step on any type of nail, even a rusty one! If you donít have your tetanus shot, youíll probably still be fine, though you might want to have your doctor take a look just incase!
