Human Bites Topic Guide
Human Bites: Human bites can be either quite serious or relatively harmless. Human bites can be either intentional or accidental. If a human bite breaks the skin of the person bitten, medical care should be sought promptly. Signs of infections in a human bite include increasing pain and tenderness, new redness, increased swelling, fever, red streaks, pus drainage, and swollen glands. Treatment for human bites may include antibiotics or stitches.
