bowel perforation and cat scratch disease could they be linked

Posted by angeljens

my husband suffered a perforated bowel weeks after being scratched by a cat his symptoms were: scratch became a large blister and glands swelled, he slept for a few days straight and then had terrible cramping on taking hi to the hospital, they discovered that his bowel had perforated and taken for emergency surgery he had no under lying symptoms before hand.. after surgery due to iv antibiotics the blister got smaller so we did not concern ourselves but after being released the blister has returned along with the glands swelling again and I myself suddenly have ringworm, we are not cat owners and have never had these symptoms before, therefore want to know if we should continue with the antibiotics he was on at hospital and the fact that he now has a stoma and needs to keep his skin perfect... please help
