Health Tip: Treating a Dog Bite

(HealthDay News) -- Whether you are bitten by your dog or an unknown one, you must treat the wound without delay.

Immediate treatment reduces your risk of infection, says Cleveland Clinic.

To treat a dog bite, the clinic suggests:

  • Press on the wound gently to flush out bacteria.
  • Wash the wound with soap and water.
  • Slow bleeding with a clean cloth.
  • Apply an over-the-counter antibiotic cream.
  • Wrap the wound in a sterile bandage, and change it at least daily.
  • Watch for signs of infection.
  • See a doctor.
