Hi doctor,

My child, who is 2 years old, fell off while playing. She got hurt above the left eye with mild scar. Please suggest some medication. Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Did it bleed? How deep is the wound?
  • If the child is not immunized or if it is a bad infected wound, then Tetanus injection may be required.

Thank you doctor,

Yes, it bled, but very light. She got wounded on hitting wooden plank. Can we use T-Bact or Neosporin ointment till we take her to the doctor tomorrow?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, you can use T-Bact ointment (Mupirocin) till then.
  • Was DPT vaccine - diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus vaccine given at 1-1/2 years? If yes, then no problem. She will not require tetanus shot.

For further information consult a paediatrician online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/paediatrician

Thank you doctor,

She has been administered DPT vaccine before six months.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • It is really great that you have got her immunized. So, I do not think tetanus will be required and I believe that the wound is not very bad.
