here's the story: my wife got bit by a cat on the distal phalange of her 4th finger, the right hand (no blood came out, there was no visible mark). she started having pain at the site of the bite and some swelling. the pain moved towards her proximal phalange, then her 5th finger, then between the 2nd and 3rd meta-carpal bones (the swelling was more pronounced there), then in the lowerd 3rd of her forearm, along the heart meridian.
presently there is no swelling, and the fingers are OK. she neved had any fever, no coulour changes in teh skin, no heat at the site of the swelling. now it really hurts, at palpation, between the HE4 and HE3.
is there anything i can do (i'm a physical therpaist that has just started TCM classes)? special kind of massages, herbs, points to stimulate?
