Oh, and I agree with y'all about the doctor. Especially if it gets really red or tender.

If you're unsure of how it happened, you may just want to go ahead and get a tetanus shot. You may be uneasy about doctors, but it's better than losing a foot. Seriously.

Yeah, but surely it's got to dry you out pretty badly?

Got to be a better way. I imagine a doctor is just going to prescribe some kind of cream.

I am just like you in that regard. I better be dead or have a lot of blood on me before I go to see a doctor.

If an infection gets too bad, amputation is the resolution.

Good luck.

Sounds like MRSA not a bite.....

At this point this is either just for attention or you generally are foolish.....

If it’s mrsa that won’t clean it only antibiotics will,

But it’s your life just don’t spread it to anyone else and afflict them w it

There are times when that is a bad thing... like when you're concerned enough to ask about it on the Internet.

Stubborn folk like us are allowed to break down and see a doctor occasionally... I did when I had my last heart attack. Turned out to be a good decision. Or bad, depending on which side of the issue du joir one is on.

Can you drop into a pharmacist and ask for advice?

Keep it clean and dry.
A little neosporin.
If the redness spreads more than a few inches, go to a doctor.

I highly doubt that is the cause. I do appreciate your concern though.

I kept the wound filled with salt to absorb the pus and poison.
I'm still here.

Some of my best friends are pharmacists. I have spoken to about this. They always advise I see a doctor even though they know full well I don’t like them.

All of your symptoms suggest this. And many MRSA infections people confuse as bites....

Well, I can see you don't like it, but I think you know what you have to do. You'll be fine.

Good luck

Good luck, check back in so we know your not dead.
Watch for fever and other symptoms.
Antibiotics are easy to get at the walk-in.

I never have met someone that has had that so I really don’t know much of it. Let’s say that is the cause. Does that mean I have to see a doctor? Or is there another way?

I'm a don't go to the doctor kinda guy too..they might find something.
I think though you really should, my bud had a problem from a cat bite, might of just been a scratch..unexpectedly turned into something serious, I think they put him on antibiotics

It most certainly does and it can be life threatening. Lancing it can spread infection in other areas or cause it to be spread to someone else. So could contact from a carrier left on other surfaces .....

It’s antibiotic resistant so it needs to be medicated through other antibiotics or cut out in a minor in office surgery if it’s progressed too far to medicate

Cat bites can get nasty. My brother had to take antibiotics and lost most use of his hand for a few weeks due to a cat sinking its fangs into him.
That cat is very dead and fed to the gators.
