Hello there. I can understand your concern. Tetanus toxoid booster gives immunity for upto 5-6 years. And tetanus toxoid should be taken within 6 hours of getting injured. Getting cut by knife would not give you tetanus, it's very less likely that you get tetanus by using a domestic knife. Anyways, I would suggest you consult a physician in person and till then take a tab. Aceclofenac 100mg twice a day after food. If it still persists, consult a physician soon. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
