Dear friend, I would suggest a tt injection in this case only if you had bleeding, else it is not needed. Just pain killers will do. That is what the doctor has prescribed i hope. And it would help faster heeling if you give hot fomentation to the bitten area. regards. get well soon

Hello..
Well to suggest you further I need to examine the wound...but then since a doctor has already seen it and has told you no requirement of tt then I think you need not worry about it much....
