As shown in the picture, there was no immediate bleeding when I was bitten. Looking back, I found that the swelling of the wound led to the bleeding, which may also be caused by urticaria. Later, I was always afraid of getting rabies. As a result, I am thinking nonsense every day. I go to Baidu to search for information. Whenever I think of rabies, I will choke in my throat and feel powerless. The cat involved in the accident was a British short for about 2 years. It had been under my supervision. It had been scratched and injected once before, but it was about a year and a half ago, and the cat was also injected a year and a half ago. I often stay up late, so there may be no antibody for three years. Now it has been 4 days since he was bitten by a cat. After learning about the observation method for 10 days, the cat still eats, drinks and sleeps normally. He doesn't walk disorderly and has a normal appetite. I give him snacks and he will rush over to eat. Can I continue to observe this situation? If the cat is still healthy for more than ten days, can I completely eliminate the possibility that the cat has rabies and I am infected with rabies? I'm really afraid. I'm worried that I can't sleep these days. Every time I think of it, people will be panic, and it may be because of fear, resulting in endocrine disorder, but I can't communicate with my family. If I know that I was bitten again, I will kill my cat.
In this case, I don't think you need to worry too much. Since you are confirmed to be bitten by animals, you must inject rabies vaccine in time. This is the most effective way. Only when the rabies vaccine produces protective antibodies can you fundamentally prevent it. At the same time, I personally suggest that patients also need to relax in treatment. As long as you inject the vaccine in time, there is no need to be so anxious.
It is still effective to vaccinate four days after being scratched by a cat, because the principle of rabies virus vaccination is that as long as it is not yet sick, rabies vaccine can play a preventive role before the onset of the disease. The incubation period of rabies is 1 ~ 3 months.
The cat you consulted had an injection a year and a half ago, not within a year. The ten day observation method is not applicable. You were bitten by British short cat four days ago without immediate bleeding. After returning to your hair, the wound is swollen, resulting in bleeding, which may cause rabies virus infection. You need to be vaccinated with rabies vaccine for prevention. After vaccinating rabies vaccine, don't drink alcohol and don't eat spicy and greasy pickled food
