My cat severely bit my hand yesterday and now it

Patient : My cat severely bit my hand yesterday and now it hurts to move and a little puss and blood has come out. What should I do?
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. You should see a Doctor to get the dressing done. This dressing will involve cleaning up the wound with spirit or with some cleaning agent. After this, you should also start on antibiotics as there is a small chance that you can develop Cat scratch fever which is caused a bacteria. Wishing you the best of health. Hope this helps you.
