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
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!
