my Chihuahua bite infected?
yesterday morning, my Chihuahua bit me on my little toe. its about the as wide as my toe. its not abnormal that he bit me cause he is a somewhat aggressive dog. (ive been bitten by him before but on my finger) you can see where his tooth went under my skin and lat night i noticed the pinkie toe was a little swollen. is that bad? and he hasn't had his shots in a while. the sides of the wound aren't touching and i heard if they aren't touching you need stitches; but my dad never takes me to the doc so.. ya. and one more thing, should i get a note excusing me from pe? it hurts when i walk and we're running the 800m next week. thxx -jAcEy

Dog bites aren't usually as bad as cat bites or scratches but do need to be watched. Clean the wound thoroughly with warm soapy water as a first step. Staying off the foot for a day would be a good idea and spend the time soaking the foot in warm soapy water 4 or 5 times a day for 20 minutes and then elevate the leg. Should the redness increase or you notice streaks running up your leg or drainage from the wound you should seek professional help.
