Pregnant got bitten by dog. Will there be a nerve damage? On antibiotics

I am 10 weeks pregnant and yesterday I was bitten twice by on the calf by a small stray dog. The bites broke the skin a little so i went to hospital to get it irrigated and they gave me antibiotics . But today my upper thigh in the hamstring area is feeling strange almost like its bruised badly. Is that a sign of nerve damage?

Thanks for the query.
The bruise can be part of inflammatory reaction.
Continuing antibiotics and taking analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs can relive that.
But you have to take anti-rabies vaccine along with these as chances of rabies increase in pregnancy due to decreased immunity.
You have to take the vaccine doses on 0,3,7,14 and 28th days in addition to immunoglobulins on 0 day.
Take care.
