Hand infections are very common. Treatment for hand infections may include rest, using cold or heat, elevation, antibiotics, and surgery. If there is a sore or abscess in the hand, surgical drainage may help remove any pus which immediately relieves any pain. If the infection or wound is severe, debridement may be used to clean dead and contaminated tissue from the wound. This prevents further infection and helps promote healing.
Cat bites or scratches, as well as injuries from other animals or even humans are a dangerous source of hand infections. If you have suffered from such an injury, it is often better to see a hand specialist for proper therapy of the problem, since an infection from a cat bite can have serious consequences.
