Impetigo tends to develop in areas of the skin that have already been damaged through some other mechanism (a cut or scrape, burn, insect bite, or vesicle from chickenpox).
The doctor will press (palpate) the affected lymph nodes to see if they are sore or tender, and search for an entry point for the infection, like a scratch or bite.
Although most dog-bite injuries are minor, about 400,000 children seek medical attention for a dog bite every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As a rule, children rarely see a black widow bite them, nor do they feel the bite when it happens.
A brown recluse spider's bite can lead to necrotic arachnidism, in which the tissue in an area of up to several inches around the bite becomes necrotic (dies), producing an open sore that can take months or years to disappear.
In most cases, however, the bite simply produces a hard, painful, itchy, and discolored area that heals without treatment in two to three days.
The bite may also be accompanied by fever, chills, edema (an accumulation of excess tissue fluid), nausea and vomiting, dizziness, muscle and joint pain, and a rash.
One to seven hours after the bite, the victim begins to experience the effects of the venom, which include tingling at the wound site, weakness, nausea, vomiting, excessive salivation, and irrational behavior.
Most of the time, laboratory tests for identifying the microorganisms in bite wounds are performed if infection is present.
Testing the blood of a person who has been bitten for immunity to hepatitis B and other diseases is always necessary after a human bite.
Diagnosis relies on a physical examination of the victim, information about the circumstances of the bite, and a look at the snake itself (if it can safely be killed and brought in for identification).
Any dog bite that does not stop bleeding after 15 minutes of pressure must be seen by a medical professional.
Bite victims must also watch for infection.

Human bite infections are potentially serious injuries that develop when a person's teeth break the skin of the hand or other body part and introduce saliva containing disease organisms below the skin surface.
Exact statistics on human bite wounds are difficult to establish, although one figure for closed-fist bites in the United States is 11.8 per 100,000 persons per year.
Bite injuries account for about 1 percent of emergency room admissions in the United States and Canada, with human bites ranked third after dog and cat bites respectively.
About 70 percent of all human bite wounds reported in North America involve adolescent males or adult males below the age of 40.
Closed-fist and chomping injuries account for most human bite infections.
In one study done in a California hospital, closed-fist injuries accounted for 56 percent of the human bite infections treated, with the remaining 44 percent caused by occlusional bites.
In children, bite infections result either from accidents during play or from fighting.
