Bright red human bite mark on my granddaughter s hand, bruising. What could it be?

I observed a human bite mark on my 5-year-old granddaughter's hand. The teeth marks were bright red and quite distinct at the time that I saw them; placement was above and below the knuckles. Her mom took her to the ER immediately after I saw the marks; pictures taken there showed that the marks were starting to disappear though there appeared to be a little bit of bruising. Can you get an idea of when that bite might have occurred given the information I have provided?

Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

It is very difficult to comment and further investigation into the matter is required.
Was your child playing with any child all alone?
Look into the details of individuals who were alone with the child and could have caused this.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
