Brief Answer: nose bleeding not related to vaccine or bite Detailed Answer: Hi Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Being a Parent myself and Pediatric Surgeon, I understand your concern and apprehension. Let me reassure you and remove the fear that the nasal bleeding is no way related to Rat bite or Rabies vaccination. Rat bite usually causes local symptoms like redness and swelling at the site of bite. Systemic manifestation occur rarely. Rabies vaccine is also completely safe and there is no cause for concern. Local application of T Bact ointment at site of bite will be helpful. Rest be assured there is no cause for concern. Do get back to me for any further queries or guidance, will be glad to assist you Sir. Take care Best Regards Dr Deepak Kishore MBBS, MS, MCH Consultant Pediatric Surgeon
