Ouchie Mama, Kelly!!!
I had a bad cat scratch on the upper part of my foot once, it took forever to heal and it hurt like h-e- double toothpicks!!! Did the ER doc mention soaking in embson salts?? That might make it feel a little better as sooth the infection.
Hope you heal quickly!!!
I second that- OUCH!!
My granddog is a 100 pound lab and almost everytime I see him at my sons or he stays with me he ends up stepping on one of my feet with his huge paws and nails (from playing). I have had more bruises on my feet and a limp for a day or two! No infections though- Hope it starts to feel better soon!
I hope you feel better soon. I'm glad your going back to the doc to see about this. It sounds really painful. Did you get a tetinus shot? Puncture wounds are very susceptible to tetinus because the top layer of skin heals first & can trap in the bacteria. Ask your Dr about this just to be on the safe side. Cats can carry around a ton of germs. Feel better soon.
Gentle hugs, Denise
