Dog bites aren't usually as bad as cat bites. I got a bit of a chomp on my foot seeing a client a few weeks ago (My fault, I knew the dog was a biter and accidentally crossed a line. Lots of progress after that though, and since it was my foot - little soft tissue, plus it was the numb foot - I could easily continue the session.)
That being said, basic care is what you're doing...but with first signs of an infection I'd probably agree with a Dr visit. Unless youre feeling really brave, enough to thoroughly irrigate the wound in hopes of cleaning it then letting it air-dry before putting on the poly. Even then you'd maybe buy a day...not worth it, IMO.
Good luck! I hope yours heals up as quick, and as well, as mine. AND may you avoid bites in the future!
For curiosity's sake...how'd you get tagged? Dog fight?
