Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
As your dog is vaccinated against rabies, there is less chance of you getting rabies. But it is not normal that a pet dog is attacking the family members repeatedly. Dogs also suffer very badly from parvo virus infection in which the dog has severe loose motions, vomiting and is irritable. This infection can be fatal to your dog if not treated immediately. I suggest you get in touch with his vet and get him examined thoroughly. Coming to your wound, any bite wound should be washed properly under running water with lots of soap. Do not cover the wound. Apply antibacterial cream over it. As you are diabetic you should be very careful as there is delayed wound healing in diabetics. If wound does not heal within a week, get in touch with your doctor for examination and therapy. Thanks.
