Hi, a little cat just bite my finger, is there any risk of infections? Any precautions I should take?

One organism, Pastuerella multocida, is known for causing infection within 24 hours. I usually perform a wash-out/irrigation of the cat bite and provide a short course of antibiotics (e.g. Augmentin), especially with puncture wounds, as well as updating tetanus. ...Read more

Doctors sometimes recommend putting a warm wet towel on such a pimple, to help it go away. Perhaps a warm, baked potato can substitute for the warm wet towel. As for a finger infection, a doctor should check (infection can spread to the hand). ...Read more
