and broke skin.
neither boy is vaccinated, but obviously neither have any diseases that I am aware of.
should I be concerned? reading online has me paranoid about tetanus. i have washed the wound and put polysporin on it. anything else i should do?

ETA: DS1 (the one who got bitten) did have his first 2 or 3 (can't remember, too long ago!) DPT shots. He is 4 years old.

I would just keep doing what you are doing. Keep it washed and clean and look for signs of any redness signaling infection but I would not worry about tetanus.

I agree...I wouldn't worry about tetanus at all in this case!

Just keep clean as you would any cut.
