I am really concerned that you were bitten by a stray dog and I am even worried that the dog may have died.
Your category of bite determines wether rabies immunoglobulin is needed or not. If bite was deep enough to cause bleeding, definitely deserves rabies immunoglobulin. If bite was just scratch and not deep enough, only full course of rabipur
injection is enough. If you have taken rabies vaccine
prior to this, you need not take rabies immunoglobulin this time.
Consult your doctor, if he says RIGH is required, its worth taking it at any cost. Remember rabies is a deadly disease and can be prevented 100% and unfortunately has no cure.
you can take RIGH as early as possible, but after seven days of vaccination
is not required as the vaccine starts protecting.
Follow the precautions. Don't worry you will be alright. Take care.
