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.
