Black Spots On The Neck Accompanied By Difficulty Turning Around After Being Bitten By An Animal Or An Insect?
Hello … My father was bitten by an animal, I don’t know what kind of animal it is, because my father also doesn’t know and I was not located when I was bitten. My father was bitten by the neck, and the bite mark left a black mark in the middle and accompanied by a red color around it. My father also felt painful when bitten and his neck was difficult to look. What kind of animal is it that bites? until the bite marks left a rather large black trail and made it difficult for my father’s neck to look. Thank you.
Hello Desti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
To find out what type of animal might bite your father, it is necessary to do a direct examination first by the doctor of the bite wound because the description of the wound is not enough if it is not accompanied by direct evaluation.
In addition to helping determine the possibility of the type of animal that bites, evaluation is also needed to determine the current condition of the wound and what treatment should be given because the scar is causing other complaints and also to prevent worsening or infection of the scar.
In the meantime, you should immediately check your father's condition to the doctor to get treatment as soon as possible and to prevent the possibility of worsening the condition. It is also recommended to maintain the cleanliness of the scars by cleaning it every day using clean and sterile gauze that has been given wound cleaning fluid and then can also be applied povidon iodine then covered with clean sterile gauze.
It is not advisable to take oral medication / apply medicine or other ingredients to the wound without clear advice from a doctor to prevent worsening or infection.
I hope this helps.
