My toddler was bitten by another child, and a mother told me that the bites are harmful. I would like some insight. - Sheri H
The Pediatrician Answers:
Human bites can become infected easily, so they need to be cleaned well if the skin is broken and then watched for any sign of infection (redness, pus, swelling, etc.). Usually, the toddlers who bite each other don't do a lot of damage, and often don't break the skin.
