My wife who is 5 months pregnant was slightly scratched by a cat. Almost half a drop of blood was visible on one of the scratch. Cat is not vaccinated. It just sleeps and eats in our house. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com. Important point to consider is your wife's exposure to cat litter. Toxoplasmosis can spread through the exposure to cat litter; usually antibodies to toxoplasmosis are checked in first three months of pregnancy. They might have been checked already. If not, then I would highly encourage you to show her to an obstetrician. Regarding the cut, apply local antibiotic cream and keep it clean. If there is any redness or drainage, then she needs further treatment. Avoid handling cat litter.
