I was bitten at 2:30am.The dog was my own, so no rabies worries, and I'm current on my tetanus. I won't be able to get to a doctor until Tuesday. Is hydrogen peroxide okay to use to clean a deep cut(5 -10 millmeters)? I've been using Dial soap to clean it so far. How can I prevent scarring? The swelling has yet to go down as well.
