Suggest Treatment For A Raised Mark On The Leg
Hi, I think you should consult a physician.
Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have seen your photograph. According to it, it is not indicating that you have got any scratch. The rabies is transmitted by a bite or scratch.
If you had got a scratch which has healed and which is not evident on the photograph now, tgen it is better to consult a physician and take post exposure prophylaxis. About 30 percent of raccoon carry rabies virus. So, better to be on a safer side.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any other query, I will be happy to help.
I added a second picture with the area circled. As you can see, it is very faint and only happened a few hours ago.
Hi, I think you should take antirabies prophylaxis.
Hi, I think you should take antirabies prophylaxis. You have got grade 1 scratch. It generally doesn't lead to rabies, but it's better to get a prophylaxis.
Also take a tetanus toxoid injection if not taken in last 5 years.
Hope I have answered your question.
