    Not to bug you out but you may have an infection under your skin. You really should go to the doctor before it gets so bad that the docs wont be able to help. You need antibotics.

    A friend of mine got bit were her flesh was hanging out. She did go to hospital but the wound was on her wrist and she didnt really follow up with the doctor so she now has no feeling in her wrist and her skin is dis-colored.

    Believe me get help before you cant reverse the problem

    It wouldn't hurt to get checked out. It could be a deep bruise from the bite. You didn't mention if the skin was broken so it is hard to say if it may be an infection.

    Get it checked out if for no reason than peace of mind.

    what field are you in that has such a lot of stray puppies that you're this frightened of yours getting attacked? in any case, check out a fence round ur condo so he has a colossal field to run and play in, in a nontoxic atmosphere

    Maybe u should go to the doctor? I mean it won't hurt you if you just check.
