Dear Doctor Sir/Madam, !!! MOST URGENT \Dear Doctor Sir/Madam, !!! MOST URGENT Last monday night around 11 pm when i was driving my bike 3 street healthy dogs has follwed me to attack, but when I stopped my bike, my bike got skidded I fell down. one dog among them was tried to bite me, I had weared the pent, when I had observed the spot found no blood but some itchness for 5 minutes. But at that time I got confused that it was, because of my fell down or the biting of dog. I had forgetten by thinking it may be a scratch because of my fell down. I had discussed after 4 days because i was on an official tour when in my family, my family told I should have taken the injection of anti-rabbies for that. But today, is the almost 7th day. Please suggest, can I start the vaccination course of injection of anti-rabbies !

welcome to health care magic
Effective treatment is soon (within a few days, but as soon as possible) after exposure to rabies can prevent the onset of symptoms and death.
its good to start vaccination as soon as possible.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
The best time to give Rabies post exposure prophylaxis is immediately at the time of the dog bite. You may go immediately to the Doctor and get the treatment based on the examination by your Doctor. Next time you get a bite, was the wound with soap and water and go immediately to the Hospital.
