Good information!!! What you wrote reminds me of what happened to the West Bend man. I’m not sure if you remember the story.Well, I'm a Medical Provider. Wash the areas well with soap and water.
If you're not Penicillin allergic, you need, ( I ALWAYS prescribe- standard of care) Augmentin- that's the trade name. Common Abx.
There are alternatives for PCN allergies too.
The Augmentin for the puncture wounds on you hand.
I'm really sorry for you, THIS really sucks. My sympathy.
Lots of good advice on the reports, etc.
Seriously! You need Antibiotics- the right ones, for the puncture wound. That wound has a HIGH chance of becoming infected from the inside. You'll get swelling, streaking up your arm (lymphangitis), etc. If it does get infected, (again- good chance for it), things will get really bad for your hand and arm, etc. within a week or less.
Good luck and PM me if you like.
AND!!- while yes, Rabies is alwayts talked about, dogs immunized for it, etc.
The chance of him getting rabies from that bite wound is less than being struck by lightning six times in a row, WHILE winning the Powerball! There have no cases of rabies in humans from domestic animal bites- sorry. Well, it's been many decades.
- I know what I'm talking about, you can look it up.
Infection, tenosynovitis?- YES
Has the OP even came back for an update post? He's probably in the ICU with tenosynovitis!- I hope not.
So you agree, weak men get attacked by dogsGood information!!! What you wrote reminds me of what happened to the West Bend man. I’m not sure if you remember the story.
The West Bend man who lost his legs and hands due to an infection traced to a dog's saliva is getting a visit from someone who suffered the same health complication.www.tmj4.com
