7 days ago my cat bit me.Treatments were amoxxicillin, dioxsyn?, tetanus shot and Cipro. Improved but not healed. After three pills Cipro, I got poking needles and pins.in hand where the bite is.. and in elbows fingers and hips... both side of the body. Listed as a side effect. Says to stop taking it and call. Dr... Now what?
I slept at a friends house and her cat woke me up by attacking and biting me. I call the vet the next day and she said pinch the sites to see if you are infected. I did and puss came out. Made apt with doctor and got a prescription for antibiotics. It took awhile to go away. Time for you to go back to your doctor for another antibiotic.
