    Need more advice about possible bat contact

    Hi,

    Tonight as I walked home I felt a brush passed my right calf and seen a bat flying around me in circles, I felt no sharp bite or scratch but some form of light contact.

    I washed the area as soon as I got in , I eventually phoned nhs24 and they said it should be fine and I should keep an eye on any changes.

    Would anyone have just went straight to a and e for a jab? I canít get it out my head now .

    Is there any actual visible evidence of this contact?

    Mind you..

    I once TOTALLY convinced myself I'd run someone over despite the lack of evidence - like a body.

    Thereís no evidence of a bite or scratch I just know itís brushed my leg while flying about . I was just more concerned about that sort of contact with the bat .

    That's not what you said....

    "Tonight as I walked home I felt a brush passed my right calf and seen a bat flying around me in circles, I felt no sharp bite or scratch but some form of light contact."

    You felt something then saw a bat flying about. It's your mind that is creating the false narratives and scenarios.

    Are your feeling sick or are there symptoms that are not normal like weakness and fatigue?
    Anyway, just consult your Doctor because you can have rabies from a bat bite or scratch.

    There are no such things as invisible bat bites and the UK has been rabies free since the beginning of the 20th century. No need to see a doctor.

    Well I did feel something touch my leg then a bat extremely close to me , in my area the fly around the lights in the street relatively low. I donít think I imagined the contact.
