I am sorry about the incident.

You must wash it thoroughly under flowing tap water with a hard soap like Wheel or Nirma. Wash for 5 mins. Then leave it open. Do not tie it up with a cloth or bandage.

Second, you need to go to the hospital and take injection TT or Tetanus Toxoid - one dose within 6 hours.

You do not have to do anything else.

Take care.

How big is the bite? Did you notice the mice? Was it an unprovoked bite?

In any case, it is better to take the Rabipur as well. The dose would be 3 doses at 0, 7, and 14 days.

You do not need 5 doses.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for writing back.

I understand the scenario now.

You just need to take 3 doses of rabipur along with Injection TT.

Hope this clarifies.
