Dog Bite

A dog bit me on Saturday evening. I did not go to the doctor for a tetanus. I am using betadine and gauze to dress the wound. Is this okay or do i have to go to the Doctor?

Dear Shan
If the bite area is not red, hot, swollen and sore and not draining pus, you can continue with Betadine and gauze.
