Dog bites turning into bruises. Have sneezing and headaches. Allergic reaction?

My friend s dog bit my arm 3 days ago. I have about 10 bites that are now turning into bruises. I have a fever and a runny nose. I have a headache on and off. I also keep sneezing . These symptoms started the next morning after the dog bit me. I use to be allergic to dogs when I was a kid where I would sneeze a lot but as I got older, that stopped. However, this time it was a dog bite, so my Father thinks I am just having an allergic reaction through my skin and I will be ok. Are my symptoms normal?

I hope the dog is vaccinated with antirabies vaccine. Because the more important thing besides the symptoms you described is Rabies.
Since the dog is a pet one, chances of rabies is less. Still visit your doctor and discuss regarding need for vaccination.
All other features you have can be treated symptomatically, if needed.
My best wishes
