welcome to health care magic.
After a dog bite you have taken vaccine and human rabies immunoglobulin..
At the time of dog bite you might not clean the wound properly,,or might be due to poor nutrition you are taking..
If the wound is small and pus is coming take antibiotics after consulting physician..
if the wound is large and pus is coming more consult general surgeon,,he will drain the pus and give you didn't mention your age..please check the sugar levels in your blood because of absence of pain..
after post exposure prophylaxis chances of getting rabies is almost negligible..
Hope you understand my suggestion.
have a speed recovery
Thank you
