Just as you may receive a bite from an animal, you can also be bitten by a human. It’s most likely that a child will inflict the bite. After dog and cat bites, human bites are the next most common bites seen in emergency rooms. Human bites can often lead to infection
because of the amount of bacteria and viruses in a human mouth. If you have a bite that has become infected, you may need medication or surgery
. Human bite wounds cause about one-third of all hand infections.
You should consult for immediate medication as soon as possible.
