My cat scratched my right breast well over a month ago and it left a deep sore which still has not healed. The skin around the sore is a healthy pink and a clear fluid sometime's yellow, will come from the sore especially if I am washing or in the bath as the hot water tends to make the scab come off, but the sore is now turning black. I did heat some metal on the stove and burned it, hoping that in cauterizing it, it will heal better.
I'm just wondering if I should be concerned about it becoming necrotic and as a cat scratch, should I be concerned with that as well?
