If you have been scratched by a cat whether it is just from the street or from the home of your best friend or any family member, the first act that you should do is to wash it with water and use soap upon washing it. If your wound is bleeding after the scratch, get a clean piece of cloth but we recommend you to use gauze pad and then apply pressure on the bleeding cat scratch that you have. If you think that the scratch is so deep that the bleeding is not stopping even if you have already applied proper pressure then you have to rush to get some medical help because this is now something serious.
You have to be more careful because you have been scratched by a cat in the hands and in your feet then you should pay close attention to it since these are the parts where infection is more prone because they are the ones who are more exposed to the exterior world of germs. You use your hands for everything and your feet for walking in any location that you want to go.
If you have been scratched by a cat in your eye, you should make sure that you immediately go to a physician to get medical help because this is very dangerous and there is no time for you to waste if your eye has been scratched by a cat.
For you to treat it inside the confines of your home, you could purchase over the counter antibiotic creams and you should cover your wound (applied with the antibiotic cream) with a clean gauze to avoid any more infection in any way.
Attention should be given to these cat scratches because you are the only person who could assess if the wound has progressed positively and negatively. If it has progressed positively and it is now healing, we are happy for you but if it is negatively progressing and you think that it is getting worse or it does not move at all then you should probably see a doctor.
