Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Infections in cats can indeed be transmitted to humans who are in close contact with them. This condition is facilitated by poor personal hygiene or also a weak immune system. These infections are not always caused by fungi, but can also be caused by viruses, bacteria, or even parasites.
In general, small sores on the skin that are itchy and watery at the edges can indeed be a sign of infection. Some of the possible causes of this infection are:
Impetigo (bacterial infection) Tinea versicolor (tinea versicolor) Scabies (scabies) Folliculitis (bacterial infection of the hair roots) Tinea corporis, tinea pedis, tinea manum (fungal) Cutaneous candidiasis (fungal), etc. in addition to infections, such as contact dermatitis (inflamed skin due to contact with substances that trigger allergies or irritation), drug eruptions, psoriasis, and so on.
First, it is necessary to identify exactly what triggered your complaint. Even if it is due to infection, it is also necessary to clarify what microorganism is causing the infection. Is it really coming from your pet, or the result of other causes.
Therefore, try to see a doctor directly. Through direct inspection, doctors can generally determine the best treatment, for example by administering antifungal drugs, if it is suspected that the cause is a fungal infection.
In the meantime, you should not scratch or apply anything to your wound without a doctor's advice. Take a bath regularly and wash your hands regularly, especially after coming into contact with a cat. Make sure your cat is always clean, screened regularly for health, and also gets vaccines to avoid dangerous diseases.
Hope it helps ya..
