I have this bite and its getting worse but I

Patient: I have this bite and its getting worse but I don’t know if I should call 911 or just put a bandage on it, what should I do?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.If the bite is hurting you and you feel has gone deep you surely need to call 911 and reach the ER. You will need tetanus injections and vaccines to prevent any complications. Do not wait and seek help from someone to accompany you to the hospital.Hope this helped.Regards
