it can get infected very easily and the longer it stays open the worse its gonna get and she isnt gonna stop attacking it unless you put a cone on her so I would say cone her and clean the wound with warm water then rub it with rubbing alcohol the bacatracin if its not that large..it its infected squeeze the puss out then warm water alcohol then bacitracin..you need to cone her..best of luck..god bless

I would use the same thing we use for cuts. Something like neosporian.

She has a "biy"? I'm guessing a wound? What does it look like and how deep?

A shallow cut, scrape, or hot spot can simply be kept clean and disinfected. I like to use Banixx, which is antimicrobial and antifungal, then protect minor injuries with Vaseline. Anything deeper really needs stitches from the vet.

you need to be careful of putting medicine on it if the cat can reach it with her mouth. she will lick any wound and get it in her mouth. For my cat who is always torn up from fights we wash him with a salt water solution. If you have an antibiotic like clyndamicin you can sprinkle it on the wound and she will lick that and get the benefits from it.

so just fix up some salt water and put it its not a cut its a bite she bit her self bc of fleas but I flea bathed them and put collars on her

Yup that's what we do. If its just a bite she should be fine. Just keep an eye out if it gets swollen. As long as the pus drains ( if there is any) she will be fine.

Wash the bite well with warm water and soap. Then you can apply any kind of topical antibiotic you have on hand. Neosporin, etc. I don't think I'd put the alcohol on it though. It's not a disinfectant and will burn a lot.
