Allergy Spots

Asked for Male, 24 years

Around 12 days ago, I was in the emergency ward of the hospital where I accidentally get my finger pricked from a needle placed on the table. I don't know whether it was infected or not. I told the staff, they asked me to wash my hand with antiseptic and just ignore it. Since then, I am feeling itching and allergy spots under the skin of my arm and fingers. Is it something to worry about?

Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. Kindly get a tetanus shot and always test your blood viral markers after such incidents. You can do both these things right now too. Consult an internal medicine specialist.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best Internal Medicine Specialists in Lahore and seek in-person advice.
