Cat Bite Worries

We'd had the cat in a car for an hour as we were taking her to her new home. The cat was, naturally, freaking out. She ended up biting my daughter's hand. This resulted in one puncture wound to the back of her hand.

Later in the night, there was localized swelling and pain. Today the swelling and most of the pain was gone, but it's red in the bite area.

Upon research, I've now become most terrified of what to do. I'm both afraid to not take her to the doctor and afraid to take her.

It appears there's a risk of tetanus but I fear giving my child a tetanus shot as much as I fear the illness itself.

Not sure what to do.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Tetanus cannot survive in any environment that
has oxygen- so if there was a wound and even
a tiny amount of blood that means there is oxygen
and it is not a possibility. Research it- it is commonly
known as the rusty nail vaccine which is wrong also,
bc if there is rust there is oxygen and no tetanus.

That's interesting. Once I got to the hospital, I sat in the parking lot crying. I just couldn't bear the idea that my child might be forced to get a vaccine.

I will look that up. Thanks.

I started looking up more information. I found a vet site that stated carrots on the wound could detox the area. I'm putting freshly grated carrots on the area and changing it every 30 minutes. As well, I had her washing with a green clay soap which contains lavender and tea tree essential oils.

Tomorrow, I'll pick up some colloidal silver.

If there are any homeopathics I should/could be using, I'd appreciate it.

My mother heart is so anxious.

You can give her one dose of Ledum Palustre, which
should be at Whole Foods in a 30c, give her two
pellets under the tongue. I really don't think you
need to do this tho or any of the other. Ledum Pal
is for puncture wounds from'Poisonous' animals.

It is better today and will continue to get better.
I have had same experience with taking care
of foster cats and had them puncture my hands,
arms and had the same reaction as your child.

Put some neosporin on it after hydrogen peroxide
is what I would do .
