1 Answer:

Hi.


First aid if bitten by a cat is to wash the scar with soap. After that, rinse the scar with running water. Cat bites can cause infection or rabies.


Is your cat's bite wound deep enough to cause bleeding? If it causes bleeding, then you should immediately consult your mother to a doctor.


From the situation your mother is experiencing, the itching sensation in the part that the cat bitten by may be caused by allergies. Allergies can occur after a cat bite, possibly due to the cat's saliva. Allergies due to cat bites can cause symptoms such as itching, redness. Allergic conditions that are not too severe, usually go away on their own.


But besides that, the condition your mother is experiencing may be caused by other causes such as:

infection. Bite marks
Early signs of rabies
dermatitis

Therefore, if the condition that your mother is experiencing does not improve within 2-3 days, you should see a doctor directly, so that the doctor can check your mother's condition directly first. Thus the doctor can provide the right therapy for your mother.


It is recommended that your mother wash the wound with soap. Don't scratch the scar, as this can cause infection.
