Hi there...I can understand your concern. If the wound is deep, itching and pain can be present for a few days. Continue the antibiotics and painkillers. Also if the cat is not a home pet and vaccinated, then it better to take rabies vaccine. This is just to be on the safer side. You consult a general physician. They will councel you further.
