Alternate Names : Bites-Human
A human bite is a wound or tissue injury that results from one human biting another.
What are the causes and risks of the injury?
Human bites are usually inflicted directly by an actual bite or indirectly when a body part accidentally strikes someone else's mouth such as in a fight. The knuckles are most commonly injured.
Young children, who often bite to express anger or other negative feelings, are frequently involved.
