Thanks for posting your query.

Yes,you can very well eat,what ever you want.

Anti rabies vaccine and dog bite has nothing do with your diet.

Please complete the full course of 5 injections for anti rabies.It is must for your safety.

Anti rabies vaccine will not be affected by your diet.You can eat non per your choice.

I hope this answers your query,I will be available for follow up if you have more queries.

Good to hear from you again.

As per the recommendation of W.H.O. the post exposure prophylaxis(that is treatment after dog bite) consists of 5 injections that is, on day 0(that is day of bite),day 3,7,14 and day 28.
Please discuss this with your doctor.

For dandruff,this is very common problem needs regular treatment.
Dandruff is due to infection of skin of scalp,which needs proper treatment.

There are various antifungal shampoos available in market for this. Please use this initially twice in a week and then continue once weekly. Please see a dermatologist for complete examination and evaluation and for the further treatment accordingly.

Have good nutritious diet, protect your hair from environmental damage.

Hope this answers your query.
