I accidentally posted this originally in "I'm Not Vaccinating". I meant to post it in the main forum.
DS is 8 and was immunized through 6 months so had 3 tetanus shots.
Tonight he was outside playing with the dog who had been let out to potty about 1/2 hour before and somehow the dog's paw slipped and her claw brushed his gum just under his upper lip.
It barely broke the surface, really more of a scrape than a scratch. It bled a little and I brought him in and rinsed it with water and had him rinse with hydrogen peroxide. I'm just concerned that because this was a mouth wound that I have more to worry about. It's been a few hours and I really can't even see the scratch anymore, but I'm still a little worried. Anyone want to tell me to calm down and stop freaking out?
