Animal Bites/Insect Stings
The most common symptoms of infection from animal bites are redness, pain, swelling, and inflammation at the site of the bite.
A laceration is cut, tear or opening in the skin caused by an injury. These cuts may be small, and need only minor treatment at home. Or, may be large enough to need emergency medical care.
Minor Burn Treatment
The first thing you should do when you get a minor burn is run cool (not cold) water over the burn area for about 20 minutes. Then wash the burned area with mild soap and water.
Suture removal is performed only when the wound has healed up to a certain extent or when the skin has regained around 10% of its full tensile strength.
A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture. Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls, or sports injuries.
