Hello Ike Nuryani, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Rat bites can cause several medical conditions such as pain in the wound, infection in the bite marks, bleeding, or enlargement of the lymph nodes around the wound. Infection can occur if the wound caused by the bite is contaminated by germs.
The first aid that can be given for wounds is to wash the wound with running water, clean it with povidone iodine, and cover it with clean or sterile gauze. If there is bleeding or bleeding that is still bleeding then you can try to put pressure on the wound area using the gauze.
The doctor also needs to know how deep the wound is or do a physical examination directly on your child. Especially if there are complaints such as high fever, pus or unpleasant odor, nausea, vomiting, signs of bleeding (nosebleeds, bleeding gums, red urination) then you should immediately consult with your doctor or with a surgeon. reduce pain You can also provide over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol.
