Rat Bite Wounds

Even though they're not one of the most commonplace injuries sustained by people in Britain, every once in a while bites from rats do happen, and the implications can sometimes be dangerous. If you happen to stumble upon a rat in a confined space, it could attack and bite you if it feels pressured or cornered, therefore leave the creature a clear exit route and try to avoid it.

Rat bites have been known to occur in houses where rats are being kept as pets, and shoving your hand into a rat's cage is certainly something to be avoided. Rat bites aren't always serious, though must be avoided when possible, and they can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). If it is not treated appropriately "rat bite fever" can cause death in 10% of cases.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - The symptoms of "rat bite fever" (streptobacillary RBF) can include:

  • A Rash
  • Muscle Pain
  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Vomiting
  • Joint Pain
  • Redness or Swelling

If you are unfortunate enough to receive a rat bite, thoroughly wash the wound in warm water, put on some antibiotic cream, and bandage the affected area. You should make an appointment to see your doctor, or go to the nearest A&E, even if it does not appear to be that serious. If it's five years or more since you had your last tetanus shot, you should get one of those done as well, given that rat bites can become a cause of infection.
