Does tightness in hand after dog bite indicate tendon damage or wound healing?

I am taking antibiotics for a dog bite to my middle finger, 7 days now. I feel a little tightness on the top side of my hand at the wrist. Does this indicate tendon damage or is it possibly the wound healing? The finger itself is close to normal. Thank you.

Hi, I had gone through your query and understand your concerns.

From the details mentioned, the tight feeling is symptom of healing. But you din't mention regarding anti rabies vaccine. If the dog is not vaccinated you have to go for anti rabies vaccine also and observe the dog for 15 days.

Thank you.
