Anonymous said: The other day my friend bit my finger so hard that he took two small chunks out - three days later the cuts have not closed, are a brown-ish colour and my finger has swelled and is red and really painful. he did this in a playful way as i was trying to wake him up - no negativity just worried that it could be infected or he might have rabies ;) any advice would be a blessing, thanks :)
I doubt he has rabies, He’d be seriously sick if he did. Redness is a sign of inflammation which is higher blood flow to the area to help it heal. It might take a while to heal, especially if the “chunks” aren’t intact. The brown-ness is a concern, though. Try cleaning it out with hydrogen peroxide, and keep it clean and covered, with antibacterial ointment if you have it. After a couple of days if it isn’t clearing up or showing signs of improvement, see a doctor about it. However since I am not a medical professional, If you have serious concerns about an infection (or rabies) please go see a doctor. I hope you heal speedily!
