So Charlie was on the bed with me and I was hand wrestling with him. He normally nips when I do this but is uncharacteristicly silent. He suddenly went further and bit my had pretty bad. Might need a stich. Was this an anomaly? An accident? I squealed and cursed and he went and laid down quietly on the corner of the bed. It is ok to hand wrestle right? Hand Finger Skin Child Arm

Docs usually prefer not to stitch animal bites, at least not smaller ones like you have.

You likely do need a tetanus booster and perhaps antibiotics, just to be safe.

Based on results, I wouldn't rough house with this boy, personally.
