Default Cat scratch fever

So yesterday I was at the tire store and there was a cat sitting on the chair, and I went to move it, and it reared off and ripped a three-inch scratch on the top of my hand. It hurt like hell for about an hour and then it went away, although it did feel sore.

Well this morning I woke up and my hand looked like the elephant man. The back of my hand is so swollen I can barely touch it and the scratch is like a puffy white area.

I almost feel like going to the emergency room or something, the shit is so painful I can't even describe it. On top of that I have one of the most crippling headaches I've ever had. I don't know if it's related but it hurts like hell

Ummm....Yea might want to go see the old saw bones on this one....I know they sometimes get crap caught in the paws that can cause some pretty bad infections....Hopefully it is nothing like the Urange Fever of 1981...The doctors could not find any cure for the sickness until an experiment using ExLax was done....It did slow the sickness for sure...But there were some people who didn't use Exlax and still to this day have Urange Fever...

Yeah, you really need to see a doctor if it's that bad. If its that infected your body can't fight it on its own, and you need meds.

Sounds like seeing a doctor would be a mighty fine option for what you have going on.

I was told by a doc sometimes in the 80s that I had gone to, that if you
had ever gotten scratched by your cat that spent the majority of time
outdoors, or by a stray cat, it needed immediate medical attention. He
told me this after seeing some old scratch marks on my hand, when I
had gone to him to have a mole removed. ...... When I told him I had
a cat that I played rough with all the time, and he at times would leave
some deep scratches on my arms.
His words:
Cats of all kinds will claw at (we call it play with) a fresh kill of theirs for
a purpose. It gets the blood and flesh and whatever bacteria the animal
had, on it's own claws. This material over time would collect germs and
several different kinds of bacteria that would infect the wounds of other
cats when they fought, or other animals when they defended themselves
against attacks.
He told me that it was best to have immediate medical attention after
a sever cat scratch, but definitely if it ever looked like it had become
infected.

I never had any sever reactions like that from the cats I used to own,
but I would have seen a doc had there been a hint of some kind of
infection based on what that doctor told me.

Go to the doc and get some antibiotics.

A few years ago we tried to adopt this cat from a family that was moving to Japan. Long story short - Turn out this was a demon cat and bit both me and the misses. Hurt like hell but we stopped the bleeding and then told the people to take their cat back or it was going to the shelter.

Day later my finger swelled up twice the normal size. Went to the doctor and got antibiotics. Dc said anytime you get bit / severely scratched by animal (even household pets) you need to get it checked out due to the bacteria.

My daughter-in-law's cat scratched her thumb and that thing blew up like nobody's business. She did have to go to the ER and it was drained and the docs gave her antibiotics to take. Don't mess with it - go to the ER or at least to one of those clinics in the drugstores if you can't get to a doctor.
