Got hit in leg by dog mouth, have raised bruise with 10 little red dots for a week now?

Got hit in leg by dog mouth, have raised bruise with 10 little red dots for a week now?

Dog bite: Although it sounds like the dog didn't intentionally bite you, did the dog's teeth puncture the skin? Are the little red dots in the pattern of the dog's teeth? I suggest you consult a clinician and get examined. It has been a week since the incident so the likelihood of a serious infection is lower, but the only way to tell what the red dots are is to look at them. Have a doc examine you. ...Read more

Not a bruise: You should show that abnormality in your mouth to a doctor -I doubt it is a bruise, and it could indicate something else. Do you have any red spots around your ankles? I would CALL your doctor now- it is better to be seen earlier rather than later. I also don't like the fact that you had symptoms following so closely- to me this needs further evaluation. An ID doc might be best suited to answer Qs ...Read more

I have had a dry cough for over a month now and metallic taste in my mouth after coughing. & a bruise came up behind my knee overnight. ?

Medical care: I don't know what risk factors you might have for an underlying cause, but,regardless, a cough that lasts a month or more requires evaluation. The metallic taste might be an associated symptom, especially if you have infection in your sinuses or bronchial passages. As to the bruise behind your knee, only further evaluation will reveal what's causing it. ...Read more
