Toxic shock syndrome

(Toxic shock syndrome, TSS)

Toxic shock syndrome, TSS, is often caused by a skin infection or an infection in a surgical wound but is seldom associated with the use of tampons and menstruation. However, it is important to know that if you forget a tampon, you may develop a thick,  strong-smelling discharge. If you have inserted a tampon and suddenly develop a high fever, feel nauseous and develop an odorous discharge, remove the tampon immediately and contact your emergency healthcare professional for advice.


– vomiting or diarrhea

– skin rash or redness of eyes

– swelling of your palms and soles

– muscle aches

– headaches

– dizziness and cold sweating

– odorous discharge if you use tampons

If you suspect that you have TSS, contact your doctor immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.

In Sweden, call 1177 for advice.
