Sorry : Sorry about your problem and thanks for your picture. Posters don't often do that and we are left guessing as to what is going on. You son's lip was already inflammed from the biting, and his sister's foot added insult to injury. You assume it is infected, but that is hard to tell from the picture. An infection would involve bacterial infiltration... He just seems bruised. What do you give him if he has a fever or isn't feeling well? I cannot recommend what to use, but an otc children's medication for aches, pains, or fever should help with any pain and some of the swelling. Also putting a few ice cubes in a towel and intermittently placing the towel on and off the bruise should help with the swelling. Ask your 24 pharmacist at your local pharmacy to recommend the meds. See how he does overnight and take him to your pediatrician in the morning if things aren't any better. I don't think the er physicians would do much more for you at this hour. ...Read more

Unrelated: Have you parent or guardian take him to a physician, or at least have him\her call for advice. I doubt the visit and treatment at the dentist is related to any treatment there. You're a good brother to be concerned and ask for help. ...Read more
