My mom was bitten by a dog today while delivering mail. The owners said the dog had its rabies vaccination. The bite broke the skin but did not tear through her jeans. The bite bled some and is swollen. Bite was treated with peroxide. What should she look for and what else should she do?
HI, with such presentation nothing to worry regarding that, but for prophylactic purpose i suggest to take the course of antirabies vaccine in the near by clinic. clean the would as soon as possible and dont apply any tight material above the wound.
