Late last night, I tripped over the dog while in an exhausted haze. To cut a long story short, he squealed and I squealed and then he bit me on the foot. The puncture wounds are quite deep and bled a lot. I phoned the GP who advised that I need antibiotics and a tetanus booster as it's been 13 years since my last one. When I saw the practice nurse, she gave me the injection but advised to monitor for infection. I feel a bit uncomfortable about this because the GP felt I did need them as does <ahem> Dr Google. I'm on humira, mtx and leflunomide, so a hefty whack of immunosuppressant medication. Shall I go back and ask to be seen again tomorrow or is that a waste of time? Thanks in advance.
