DOG BITES by MH
A young 13 year old boy is at my son's pool party and can't swim due to a recent dog bite where the e/r put in 27 stitches. The boy is limping badly and naturally should not be at any party.
His bandaging was seeping and I asked him about his situation and learned of the 27 stitches…..he also wanted zero info or aid………which is sad and my son does not know him well and we have no clue who is parents are, etc………..
1. doctors are trained to NOT stitch up bites because they get infection and will seep, etc…….
At best, after cleaning, they strap the flesh together, etc…unless it was super bad, then I guess they would need stitches and enable the wounds to drain.
2. he will have scars for 40+ years due to these stitches.
3. "if" they had used BF&C powder or if need be---the STOP BLEED POWDER formula and wrapped the wound, my guess would be that not only would it heal quickly, it would heal scar free.
99.9999999% of the world population does not know that and doctors are more ignorant than most when it comes to simple wound care.
Numbing fluids are toxic and aid in the creation of scars and no doubt they put him on pain drugs as well and who knows what all else.
PARENTS need to know simple home health education before problems develop and 99.999999999% of the young ones never will, because their parents did not train them and they all pass down their ignorance and the kids pay for it……I grew up that way and have my old scars to prove it.
