According to the doc, it might be the psychological effect that Alera has bitten himself. I hope I spelled that word correctly. Anyways, the doc has cleaned the wound with chlorhexidine (antiseptic solution) and applied Rowarolan (calcium carbonate) powder on Alera. He told me the powder will work better and faster than cream. I was told to wash the wound twice daily. Alera is getting better each day and this shows a good recovery process. I hope the blood test result turn up okay too. Will have to wait and see.
