What to do about a human bite?

See a doctor now!

Human bites, especially if it penetrates the full thickness of the skin, have a very high potential for infection; much higher than dog bites. See a doctor immediately as these are almost always treated with antibiotics.

Will benadryl temporarily suppress a human bite? dont want anyone to know

Not really.

Antihistamines
A human bite is dangerous if skin was broken and almost always needs antibiotics (generci Augmentin Rx of choice). If skin was not penetrated, I cannot understand how taking Benadryl can help.

Do you think I should go to the doctor for a human bite that didn't break skin?

Probably not

Fingernails
In general, if there is no break in the skin, there is no need for medical attention. Be aware, however, that if there is a break in the skin, you could end up with some pretty nasty infections. The mouth is teeming with bacteria.

What is more dangerous: an untreated human bite or an untreated black widow bite?

That depends.

Human_bite
A human bite can cause tissue injury & infection. A black widow spider bite may cause a minor reaction or a severe one. People rarely die from the bite of a black widow - but most deaths that do occur are in the elderly or in infants. So - there is NO one -size fits all answer to this. Each human bite case & each black widow bite case are different.

Should I go see a doctor for human bite on my arm? This 13 year old girl bit my arm during a confrontation when I had to hold her head down. At first, I just had few scraped skin on my arm, but few days later, I noticed a greenish-blue bruise in a circle

Hello.

Hello. If you have not had a tetanus shot in the last five years, then recommend you be seen. If you develop redness, tenderness, swelling, drainage, warmth, red streaks or fever, you would need to be seen for an infection. This is a psychiatrist answering. I hope that you are receiving help as a family for the difficult interactions. Take care.

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

Please tell me, are human bites the same as animal bites?

No

Animal_bite
Human bites are prone to cause infection because the human mouth is full of bacteria. Animal bites can also cause infection, frequently with bacteria that commonly colonize the animal's mouths as well. These bacteria are frequently different than those in the human mouth. Some animal bites can cause rabies which does not occur with human bites.

What do you suggest to release a human jaw from a bite?

? ? ? ?

Head-jaw
Your question doesn't really make sense.. please rephrase for an accurate answer. If you are asking how to treat a jaw that is locked in a closed position, then see your dentist to have the cause determined and to be treated for the problem.
