Dear Friend, Using a lancet already used by some other person is not a good thing to do. Diabetes is not an infection, it is disease condition. But still if you have swelling , redness, pain at the site where you used the lancet immediately see a doctor. If none of these happen, do not worry. Taking at tenatanus injection will be a good idea, just for sake of safety. Best wishes.
