He was scratched by his cat and didn't leave the house for 20 days. He was young and didn't get vaccinated. Three intermittent scratches, bleeding and pain. The wound was washed with soap for six or seven minutes and sterilized with disinfectant gel for two times. I received four shots of rabies vaccine a month ago, but only two shots. Do you need to inject vaccine in the whole process? Is the ten day observation method feasible? Note: the picture is the wound after cleaning, which can't be seen clearly.
Hello, the situation you said was scratched by your cat who hasn't been out of the house for 20 days. A month ago, you injected two shots of rabies vaccine in the process of four shots. Now there are antibodies in the body, which can't prevent infection with rabies virus. You need to inject the remaining two shots of rabies vaccine as soon as possible. If the cat hasn't been vaccinated, the ten day observation method is not applicable
It is necessary to inject vaccine as soon as possible to prevent the possibility of rabies virus infection. Iodophor disinfects the wound to avoid repeated stimulation and observe the condition of the wound. If there are other symptoms, it is more necessary to check and treat in the hospital as soon as possible to alleviate the symptoms, so as to avoid delaying the condition and the possibility of other complications.
Cat scratch, as long as there is slight skin damage, you need to play rabies vaccine to prevent infection with rabies virus. The wound should be washed repeatedly with soapy water and then disinfected with Iodophor or alcohol!
Two doses of rabies vaccine a month ago is not preventive! Now there is bleeding after being scratched, which belongs to class III exposure. Rabies vaccine and immunoglobulin are required to ensure safety!
