Assuming it was a bat, first you need to clean the area with soap and water. You can apply an ice pack to the are for any discomfort (20 min. on at least 6x/day for 48 hours).
Bats can be outside at the time of day you stated. A moth of insect would not "smack" you in the face, however a small bird could (cardinals are out at that hour). Bats often do not leave marks.
If you think it was a bat, then to be sure, you need to be evaluated and get the rabies vaccine to be on the safe side. The shots do not hurt, but it is a series of injections to the arms. Perhaps you can call around for a place to go that can work out a financial plan, but if you are going to do it (which I recommend), you need to do it ASAP/immediately.
Let us know how it goes. :-)
Thanks, Foogy. I called the nurse online with my health insurance and she told me don't have any risk to rabies since there is no wound or mark. She told me to not go to the ER because they would not do anything for me without a bite mark. I don't feel comfortable with this so I plan to call my doctor first thing in the morning (her office was closed today). Hopefully she will be more helpful.
I am worried and did not sleep at all last night.
Good for you for being proactive. Like I said earlier, you don't often see marks with bat bites, so you are taking the right approach. Keep us informed and let us know what happens.
whatever happened did you get rabies shots?
It looks like this incident happened last year. I just got this message today on my site. I hope that nothing happened regarding the incident. It does sound like a possible bat. They do come out at dusk. If you get a chance would you update us.
