My daughter was playing outside and a rusty nail went through her boot. She has a wound that I can not tell if it's just surface or a deep puncture. She's walking on it, and was not acting as if it was very painful, and it did not swell, puss, or get red. I squeezed it to make it bleed, cleaned with hydrogen peroxide, soaked in epsom salt, applied coconut oil, and manuka honey (at seperate times) and she has not had a fever. But I also know that the incubation period can be weeks to months. I took her in to get it looked at, but the doctor hardly even looked at it and just prescribed antibiotics. So, I guess I'm wondering if I should try to get the TIG shot, or is there anything else I can be doing to prevent the possibility of tetanus? The amount the wound bled did not relieve my worry, and I wish I knew how to tell how deep the wound actually is, bceause then I could relax. My worry is it's deeper than it seems and that part of the wound did not bleed out.
I attached a picture, and yes, there are two wounds. the bigger one is the one I'm questioning the depth of. I believe she felt it and try to pull off of it and the nail pierced twice.
