Our dog bit our son last night. Our boy was wrestling with his uncle and lost his balance, falling on the dog. The dog reacted quickly and bit him promptly, right on his left cheek. There are 3 visible punctures of skin, but only one is deep enough to be concerned about. None require stitches. My question is how do I keep them clean while they are healing? We immediately cleaned them with h2o2 and put neosporin and bandages on them. But now I need to know... does he need to be checked out by a doctor ( for any shots,antibiotics,etc) to protect him from anything the dog might have? Or just keep doing what we're doing (h202, neosporin, bandages)? Sorry its so long...Answer Question
