Tetanus and self-mutilation
I cut my left arm.

deleted disallowed subject

I noticed that the arm I cut on has started to hurt. It feels kinda stiff and it seems a little harder to do things with that arm and hand. I checked my imnmunization records and I actually had a tetanus/diphtheria/? shot back in april of 2006. Am I at risk for tetanus? I would appreciate a response. I don't think I got dirt in the cuts, but I'm not sure.

No, you are not at risk for tetanus. You probably have an infection or cellulitis.
