I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that I'm not allowed to correspond with you outside of this venue. It sounds as if your cat has a ruptured bite wound abscess. Can you upload a photo of this wound to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. If I'm correct, these abscesses are best attended to by his vet who may have to sedate your cat, open up the wound further, flush it out with an antimicrobial solution such as chlorhexidine, debride it of devitalized tissue if necessary, and then prescribe a systemic antibiotic to be given for a minimum of 5 days.
