It is always advisable to take at least an injection of T.T as a preventive measure because there is no specific medicines for animal bite or scratch other than for dog bite.Also if need arises you can take antibiotic if your doctor advises;so better get examined by your family doctor as a precautionary measure.

I recently got scratched (a week ago) by a wild cat that I have been feeding close to 10 years, then cat ran off. I immediately washed the wound with soap and warm water for a good 1-2 minutes then dabbed with peroxide. I seem to be fine, my scratch healed within 2 days forming a white scab. Do I still need to see a doctor to get tested?
i gave my cat a pill last night and the tip of one claw gave me a shallow puncture. Slightly swollen this am, called nurse line and based on symptoms, determined i didn t need to be seen at that point. i watched it all day. now it s getting pink in the area around the puncture. not sure swelling has increased. what to do?
Hi . I ve taken idrv 4 doss vaccination between 2 year. I had a cat in my home and before 2 weeks , it scratched me in my hand. It was a small scratch and bit blood came . Cat was okay perfect at that time. Before 2 days , it got ill and died. My parents told me to take idrv again. But i went to a government hospital and the doctor said that there is no idrv vaccination in Banglore government hospital and i needed to take the idrv within 24 hours. The time is already late , so there is no benefit of taking vaccination. I heard that idrv is wildly expensive in private hospitals. I m a student, i can t afford that much money. So my parents want me to come back and take idrv in my native place. It s available free there. It s ending time for my studies. So it s hard to go back. What should i do? Is there anywhere i get idrv free in bangalore? How much it will cost for idrv in private hospitals?
Hi, my bf and I had dry humping couple of times yesterday. He had 2 boxers on and shorts and I had my panties. We tried to make sure nothing came on me. The next day evening I started feeling nauseous and tired. After a day, I still felt slight nausea but whenever I ate something, it stopped. I urinate a lot too and feel tired. I belch a lot too. My breasts feel a little tender and nipples hurt(i think they hurt because of bf making out on them too much yesterday). Am I pergnant?
I m having an issue with my periods lately. Since I was 12 I got it every month but never knew when in the month I d get it. Often I d get it on holidays or other big events. When I turned 14, they got a lot heavier periods. Pain killers bearly worked. I also just wasn t hungery and could go a whole day or two without eating more than a few bites of food. My mom thinks it might of been an issue inside me that I got from my dad s side of the family. I asked but nothing seemed to match up. Now I m 15. My periods have gotten really weird and it s starting to worry me. I was out and moving a lot over the summer and my periods were almost painless and I could even forget I had it. Once school started for me, I didn t get out as much and my period is more heavy than I remember. Well, at first I just had a lot of spotting for almost a month before I got the full out period. I felt fine for a little bit other than some cramps , but after I moved around and woke up more, I started to feel really sick. I felt like I had a fever , got pale, felt like I was going to puke, and everything in my body seemed to hurt. I had to be sent home it was so bad. This has happened to me before but then I had reason behind it. I thought I was sick from badly cooked food the first time and the other two times I was already sick. But me being in good health other than a runny nose from allergies turning into a fever and sickness when I get my period worries me. I need to find out what s causing this soon because I m tired of having to miss school and other things because of a period that leaves me in so much pain I don t want to leave bed. I ve never had sex and don t take any birth control medication so that takes a lot off the list of what s wrong. Do you know what it might be that s causing my periods to act so weird?

Thank you so much for this opportunity.My name is Sandra prior to this time I haven t seen my period( mestrual cycle) for almost 2 years which was in 2010,but on the 30th of August 2012 my period came and I was very excited but didnt show up in september.The next time the mestrual cycle came was in October 12th 2012.I was scheduled to do an IUI but when the doctor had a virginal scan on me he discovered that the lining of the womb is thin and he placed me on 6 tablets of 2mg progynova daily with primolut N . The question is,is the dose not to high having to take 2 tab -3times daily? I took the same drug in 2010 in another city I was asked to take just 1tab daily so am wondering why the doses high and the safety. thank you so much for your response
