this morning we noticed my 2 year old's nuckle of his little finger looked a little pink-red. We thought it was a little scrape or something... We washed it and left it alone. About an hour or so later we looked at it closer and it looked like a tiny white blister? with a dot in the middle and a little pink area around it as in a little infection? We then put peroxide on it, neosporin and a bandaid. It hasn't really changed or gotten worse and it it is not very bad but I didn't see how he got it or when he got it...I don't think it was yesterday- but I am not sure.... I am not sure what it is- is it an infected blister? did he get a splinter that got infected??? Any ideas?
I am worried because he does not have the tetanus vaccine.... Do I need to worry here? IS tetanus directly related to an infected wound? Should I try to squeze it? It is tiny but I am upset I don't really know what it is...
Thanks for listening!
I would not worry about tentanus--you need a deep puncture wound for that-deep enough that air can't get to the bacteria to kill it. This doesn't sound remotely like anything that could be a tetanus risk. It does sound like an infection.
