Update on cat bite

Thank you for all of the good wishes on my cat bite. Well, I ended up in the hospital for four days as the red streaks were getting worse. There, of course, I got on a different antibiotic IV and had watchful nurses to look over me! It was so great to see the streaks diminish the second day. I'm home now and only have to take oral antibiotics for a week, but was sent home with the warning to call immediately if anything isn't right. But all seems well now. Again, thank you all for your concern.

I'm glad that you seem to finally be on the mend. What an ordeal!! I had to go that route last Dec after my manicuring scissors slipped and went into my index finger knuckle. It's no fun, but was so glad the treatment was available.

I hope you continue to do better each day.

Great news Phyllis! I've had a couple friends who had arm and hand swelling from cat bites, but no red streaks. Glad you took it seriously and got to the doctor!

Good news . Glad to hear it . I forget the story though. Was it YOUR cat or a strange one who bit you? Cat bites are very serious business as you well know.

Lily, I had tried to break up a guest cat attacking mine. She actually is a nice cat with people, but hates other cats. She is now back living with grandson and wife and enjoying herself, I know.

I had a cat bite once it was my DD's cat~~~at urgent care they said cat bites are the worst of the animal bites to get? If we had not known the cat and knew he had all his shots I would have had to have a different type of treatment. They also had to fill out paper work to send in to Animal Control, did you have to do that?

Yours sounds so horrible so glad you are on the mend;)

I've had 15 cats over many years and have never been bitten by any of them, not even scratched badly. When there's a rare fight I get my water bottle and they break it up. I wonder why their bites are so serious. I'm glad it all went well with you , Phyliss

Glad you are recovering well. The one time I had a cat bite I was trying to hold the cat still and she bit the top of my
hand. It started swelling and I went into the Dr in a couple of hours because it was getting worse. He looked up cat
bacteria to make sure to give me the right medication. It worked out fine but I was surprised at how fast the swelling happened.
