    Mysterious scratch, now cold symptoms

    Hello Everyone,

    A month ago I was outside photographing a family and stepped back into a mulchy area around a tree- cause I was too close. I didnít notice till late at night when I was driving but my ankle started itching and it was painful.

    I got home to notice a sore red line with multiple dots/ chunks 2 close together and a few others apart on the same line. It was itchy and sore for a few days- didnít help when I would wear socks as it was right on ankle line...

    4 days ago- I started to have a mild sore throat which has developed into a cough... itís lingering and I canít talk without coughing.... of course you can guess my fear... what if that scratch was rabies and this is the beginning? I have no other symptoms except post nasal drip and runny nose- along with sore throat from coughing. I am starting to feel a weird / tight / tingling sensation in my throat ....

    Help!

    If you can't stop coughing then go to the doctor and get them to check your throat to see whats going on and if its a virus or something that needs antibiotic treatment. Not sure why you would put together a scratch from some undergrowth at ankle line with rabies ?

    Because you donít always know when youíve been scratched by a bat and this scratch appeared out of nowehere after I was outside...

    Iíve now been up all night with chills and night sweats.... Iím really panicking and feel a huge sense of doom.

    Pretty sure bats don't hang out at ground level much.

    There are a few here that have had rabies so often that they should all get together and donate blood and tissue samples to help eradicate the disease... Ohh wait, with very few exceptions worldwide, that's already happened

    ... I know they donít but they just found a bat on the ground outside a very large , busy department store 6 miles from me a few months ago.... so I mean if they had rabies they would.

    I just donít understand why a scratch would have the tingling when it first happened.... I tried to write it off and not think about it- which I didnít, but now that Iíve been getting progressively worse for 4 days I canít help but think what if this is the beginning of it...

    Getting scratches and getting colds are both very common occurrences. Getting rabies really isn't.
