As dog is already vaccintated you need not to worry. even if you do not take vaccine it will be ok. but in my opinion you should start with vaccine. it has no harm in taking the vaccine in stead of not taking. it will be available in government hospitals free of cost or at token charges. so in my...

My child got bitten by a dog last Saturday and we had him vaccinated for anti rabies also that day, we went for a follow up check up last Tuesday. Yesterday my son develops a fever , 38C and despite of the paracetamol that I gave him, the fever is not abating. What will i do? his next check up is supposed to be this coming Saturday.
Hi,

The fever your son has now developed is not related to the dog bite. You may give him paracetamol every 4 hours according to his body weight for the next 24 hrs. If it does not subside in a day, you may take him to the Emergency room or prepone his appointment with his doctor.

My good...
