i got scratched by my cat yesterday it left 3 scratch marks it was bleeding. she goes outside. what are chances of getting septicaemio? im healthy person
It would be unusual for you to become septicaemic from a cat scratch but not impossible. Before you became septicaemic you would first see that the skin around the wounds was becoming swollen red and warm and there maybe a discharge from the wounds. If this was to happen then oral antibiotics should be able to get rid of this superficial infection before it became serious enough to cause sepsis.
