  • Animal bites and children - emedicine
    Peak incidence of animal bites occurs among children aged 5-14 years. A major concern in all bite wounds is subsequent infection. Infections can be caused by nearly any group of pathogens (bacteria, viruses, rickettsia, spirochetes, fungi).

  • DOG BITES IN CHILDREN
    Dog bites represent an important healthcare problem ranging from trivial to fatal injuries, often unappreciated by the general public. The majority of victims are children.

  • First Aid for Black Widow Spider Bite
    If bitten, remain calm, collect the spider, if possible, for positive identification and get medical attention immediately. (Contact your physician, hospital and/or Poison Information Center.) First aid is of limited help. Application of a mild antiseptic such as iodine or hydrogen peroxide prevents infection.
