Healing time for a dog bite?
I was bitten by a dog (long story) Sunday on my thumb. I’ve been needled, checked and have punched my antibiotic punchcard already so no worries there.
Little fella got me right on the knuckle of the thumb and I’m having some swelling that’s making it difficult to move or use my digit. I like having opposable thumbs and would really like to know how much longer I can expect swelling to keep me one-thumbed.
Anyone have any experience with this? Any tips beyond hot water (because that stings a bit)?
