Your child will not get rabies if another child bites him/her.Children used to be at risk of tetanus but your child has been immunised against tetenuas early in infancy. Human bites can also become septic so it is essential to clean the bite wound very well using a good antiseptic. If there bite wound is large then your child should be seen by a doctor.
