I was scratched by a cat. It is so lovely. My friend told me that I need ask for medical assistance, since it is likely for me to get cat scratch disease. Is it such serious. What should I do?

If the wound is not bleeding heavily, clean the wound with soap and water, and hold it under running water for several minutes. Dry the wound, apply antibiotic ointment, and cover it with sterile gauze or a clean cloth. Call your doctor if the bite or scratch broke or punctured the skin, even if the area is small.
