Dd2 just bit dd1 in the face and she drew a bit of blood, but it's only a graze. I have a feeling I read somewhere that human bites can be dangerous, but do you think it's okay in this case? Am possibly overreacting, just shocked at dd2 being so vicious
THanks for advice!

Human bites are considered relatively high risk for infection if they break the skin and often recommended antibiotics - suggest you ring direct line or check with GP. PRob ok if only a graze - make sure you have cleaned it well - but I would check it out just to be sure. hth
