Default Re: Can getting cut with some corroded copper be a problem?

If you're feeling weird, and your muscles are locking up with no particular reason within the next 20 days, tell your mom or dad to get you to the doc immediately, as this is Generalized Tetanus.

Whatever the case or whatever it may be, before it gets infected or something weird happens, go see a doc.
Thanks for the info, but I found it was dirty. Maybe some old dust or somthing or something on it? Still a problem or what?
