TSS is a medical emergency.

While these symptoms could be due an illness other than TSS, it's important to contact your GP, local out of hours service or NHS 111 as soon as possible if you have a combination of these symptoms.

It's very unlikely that you have TSS, but these symptoms shouldn't be ignored.

Go to your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department or call 999 for an ambulance immediately if you have severe symptoms or your symptoms are getting rapidly worse.

If you're wearing a tampon, remove it straight away. Also tell your doctor if you've been using a tampon, recently suffered a burn or skin injury, or if you have a skin infection such as a boil.

If your GP or doctor suspects you have TSS, you'll be referred to hospital immediately.

Hi,
Thanks for the advice.
Yes I already removed the tampon.
When I had my morning breakfast, i felt okay..After having breakfast I am no longer feeling weakness.
Should I still consult a doctor.

I would just in case.

The symptoms of TSS start suddenly and get worse quickly.

Symptoms can include:

a high temperature (fever) of 39C (102.2F) or above
flu-like symptoms, such as a headache, chills, muscle aches, a sore throat and a cough
feeling and being sick
diarrhoea
a widespread sunburn-like rash
the whites of the eyes, lips and tongue turning a bright red
dizziness or fainting
breathing difficulties
confusion
drowsiness
