Rat bites are not always dangerous, depending on the severity of the rat bite wound. Rat bites may cause several diseases such as bacterial infection at the bite site.
From the circumstances that you experience, if you experience a rat bite that is not too deep then it tends to be harmless. Your initial action is right enough to wash the bite marks with water and soap. but next time it is recommended to use antiseptic soap, and rinse using warm running water. Then close the wound using an antiseptic ointment, and watch for signs of infection such as redness on the bite marks, swelling, and fever.
If you use rubbers, it is not dangerous. you simply rinse the area with running water and antiseptic soap and then close the wound. Change the wound cover every day and give an antiseptic ointment.
If there is severe pain, or swelling, then consult a doctor directly, so that the doctor can check your condition directly and provide appropriate therapy.
