Dog bite injuries might seem minor at first, especially if the attack wasn’t very bad. This can be misleading because things can change quickly. When a dog bites you, the teeth pierce the skin and underlying tissues. Because the dog’s mouth is full of bacteria and germs, these might be pushed beneath your skin through the wound. We know this is a difficult situation for you because of the pain that you are in.
Puncture wounds are dark, warm and moist. These are the perfect conditions for infections to set in. Unfortunately, this is something that you might have to battle when you are dealing with a dog bite. It is imperative that you have it evaluated by a medical professional and embark upon a treatment plan. You should also check the wound at home and report any odd symptoms, such as it being very red or having a foul discharge, to your doctor.
The impacts that the body faces in a serious dog attack can be compounded by damaged tissues near the puncture wound. This can make it more difficult for you to heal from, and it will likely cause more pain than a simple wound. Severe bite wounds might lead to an inability for you to do the normal activities that are necessary throughout an average day.
