Anyway, there are already a few boys at daycare who are very cliquey and bully my son, so I don't see why I shouldn't try and protect him.
Edit: I also see a big difference between hitting and biting. I know kids don't see the difference but I wouldn't tell my child not to play with someone if they just hit him. In fact, I never tell my child who to play with and I wouldn't, I haven't in this situation.
By 'avoid them' I mean I wouldn't be encouraging the friendship, like i wouldn't go and seek out the mum of this child for a play date, unless my son specifically asked to play with him. Basically what I'm trying to explain is that I haven't said anything to him either way about this child as I don't even know him, all I said so far was that it wasn't nice of him to bite him and that if he does it again (or anyone else for that matter) then he must tell me or his teacher. I just won't be organising play dates with this child unless my son asked. (For the record, I haven't organised any playdates for him with any of the kids anyway as I don't actually know who his friends are or if he even has any, except for one boy who he played with a few weeks ago and DH happens to know this boy's father so we were going to arrange it)

If your child got bitten at daycare what would you do?

I'd ask what their policy is, and if this kid has bitten before (no need to know who it is). Purely because if it is an ongoing thing, the kids should be shadowed to an extent.
Our have both been bitten and done the biting, and I have worked in daycare.

I have another question, what's the general policy on cleaning the wound? I was told the daycare uses soap and water only, no dettol or antiseptic etc

I've never asked. Soap and water should be fine.

I was the mum of a biter. One day he bit 6 kids. I was so ashamed and freaked out. They assured me it was age appropriate and not to worry. Thankfully he did grow out of it. Your kids bite or they don't. I used to hate the parents that think they were better than me cause their kids didn't bite. Like its was their sh1t hot patenting or something. Anyway, hope your boy is ok.

DD's best friend at daycare went through a stage of biting her constantly, one she still has a scar from, apparently they competed endlessly over toys. It all worked out fine, I really love DD's bestie and we catch up for play dates as much as we can, it was a stage and he just grew out of it. It didn't mean he was less of a beautiful boy he was just acting on his frustration.
