    My darn rabbit bit me today!

    It was through a caheart (sp?) jacket a turtle neck and it still bit hard enough to break skin. It didn't rip/puncture my shirt and jacket anything.

    I washed it and put h202 on it.

    Will I be ok?? Haha I mean can u get any bad stuff from a rabbit bite?

    Just keep an eye out for the usual signs of infection. Redness, swelling, heat and more pain than should be expected. You may want to do some warm soaks if it's a deep wound. Good luck.

    topical antibiotic, if it looks infected get oral meds. A feeder rat bit me a few days ago and the bite is just healing now.
