Hi, I have a small (not very deep) scratch on

Hi, I have a small (not very deep) scratch on my arm that I didn't notice right away. It swelled a little and at first I thought it was a knotted muscle (before I noticed the scratch). It also has caused some tingling in my arm. As soon as I noticed it I washed it thoroughly and applied neosporin. It seems to be getting better. I'm not sure what it's from but I have recently been moving and cleaned out a storage unit with some mice in it, I'm a bit worried it's from a mouse I didn't notice get on me, but it could well be from something else. Should I be worried?

Hi. My one year old daughter got to close to my dog well he was eating and he slapped at her. It was only a small scratch and wasn t deep at all right under her chin. We cleaned it really good and covered it up ,although she did not keep the band aid on long. Now she has a lump under the skin and it is red. It does not seem to bother her unless we poke at it. Any suggestions about what it might be or what we could do to make it better?
