ANewTedNugentSong!!: I hope not. When were you bitten? If over a week and you feel OK except for a slight fever don't worry. But if you feel like you're coming down with the worst flu you've ever had (which you probably are, but still have to play it safe) and maybe get a rash, then head for a doctor and tell him your story. Maybe you'd have it and if so, there are antibiotics for it. Luckily, it's pretty rare. ...Read more

Dr. : Dr. Edderai has given you a good source to answer you question. The use of fluroride in our daily lives have become a very controversial and emotionally charged issue with some activists going to great lengths to search for and highlight possible adverse effects of the mineral. Most of their claims are not backed up by valid peer reviewed research. Also understand that if you eliminated every food, drug and environmental product that has harmful side effects you would be left with little in the way of effective treatments for the diseases known to man and there would be significantly less in the way of food for the world to eat.
