Long story short. . .
Saturday night at a friends birthday party I was petting the downstairs neighbors dog. It was friendly and licking my hand so as i went to crouch down to play it more it jumped up and bit my lip. (rather common behavior for pit bulls)
I went to the emergency room and needed five stitches to close the outside of the wound, and the inside was left to heal itself.
My stitches will be removed Thursday night.
My only instructions were to rinse my mouth with hydrogen peroxide when I wake, after eating, and before bed. to apply an antibiotic ointment every once and a while and to take an antibiotic pill twice daily with food for three days . . .
I'm wondering if anyone has some good holistic advice to help my healing?
