First, clean and wash the wound gently with a quaternary soap like normal (regular) Lifebuoy soap and water fifty times.
Do not cover the wound as the rabies virus
dies on contact with air.
Did the dog bite without provocation? Can that dog be identified and tied up for observation for ten days?
If you did not bleed from the wound, then it is a Class II bite. Please arrange for Post-exposure Rabies Vaccination
. The new vaccines are given in a small dose intra-muscularly in the arm or thigh. Anti-Tetanus Vaccine
may also be taken.
You may require a painkiller. Please consult your local physician.
