Hi thanks for using HCM.

I appreciate you for the initial first aid. Antirabis immunoglobulin injection depends on type and site of bite and will be given around the bite site..
Usually we prefer and recommend giving rabipur in arm due to complete and faster absorption.If you had followed the dog, and if it lives more than 10 days then you could have stop drug for 3 dose only.

Now you have completed a new regimen and taken 5 injection, So your treatment is OK now. No need to avoid head bath and others. You enjoy your day. Take care.
