Fever Accompanied By Headaches And Nausea After Being Bitten By A Sick Cat?
Hello, 3 days ago my finger was bitten by a sick cat. But there was not the slightest injury to the bitten finger. But the next day I have a fever. Today the fever has gone down, but it’s still a headache and nausea .. My mouth feels bitter and has no appetite. Is this just a cold or something to do with the sick cat? Because the fingers that are bitten do not cause the slightest injury …

In connection with your question, then there is a history of animal bites that you experience, but no bite wound was found at all, then this condition should indicate the skin of the bite area is still intact, and this means there is no contamination from animals that bite into your body.
