Brief Answer:
No need to worry., it’s not rabies.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
It’s not rabies. Rabies vaccine is very effective and the symptom complex you have explained not suggestive of rabies too.
Since you have taken a full course of ARV six months back, No need to take entire course again. You need to take only 0 and 3 dose only
Wishing you good health
