Feet Aches After Being Bitten By A Cat?
Hello doctor, I’m lina. It’s been 2 days my fingers feel very painful when made way. Because indeed 2 days ago I was bitten by my pet cat. Is there a way to overcome this?
Sores from animal bites are very risky for infections. The symptoms due to infections caused by swelling, fever, pain, felt warm around the bite and pus appeared. Another risk that is quite serious is the bite or licking of animals affected by Rabies. Some things to look out for are if the animal that is biting shows aggressive behavior, is afraid of water, or if the animal has not been vaccinated against Rabies.
The simple steps you can take if you experience a cat bite include:
clean the wound with running water and if there is an antiseptic solution
Do not apply any medicine or herbs before consulting a doctor
compress ice bite marks that have been cleaned to reduce swelling and pain
check with your doctor so that you can assess the severity of your wound and get appropriate therapy
vaccinate your pet and keep his body clean regularly
so hopefully useful
