Our expert says:
The tetanus injection can cause a bit of inflammation in the muscle - so if not red, I don't think you have to worry about it. Animal bites tend to always get infection, even sometimes with antibiotic medication and you have been doing the right thing by treating it with antibiotic ointment - you can keep the plaster on as it keeps the area soft and prevents a crust forming that keeps the pus inside. If the hand is not swollen and red, you can continue with current treatment
