WANTED- Bartonella Henslae
Cat Scratch Disease, Bacterium
Symptoms will not appear until 7 to 14 days after you get scratched. First signs of the infections are fever, headache, rash, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue. Medical treatment is usually not needed but in some cases it gets bad enough to seek medical help. Some antibiotics the doctor will give you is azithromycin, rifampin, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, and more if it is serious enough.
This infection can be found in cats, normally kittens. There are no symptoms on the kitten so you won't know they have it until they scratch you and you get infected.
The best way to prevent yourself from getting this disease is by not playing rough with your cat so you don’t have any chances of getting scratched or bitten. If you do get bitten or scratched you should wash the wound immediately to reduce the risk of getting infected. You could also treat your cats for fleas by getting a flea collar.
