My daughter is 5 years old. A vaccinated dog scratched her right hand with its teeth. There is no skin damage but deep red mark is visible.
Is anti-rabies vaccine optional or compulsory for her?
Thank you for your query on icliniq.com.
Let me explain the seriousness of the deep red marks simply :
Visible deep red marks could mean a very small wound but it is still a large door for rabies virus to enter.
If rabies has once developed, then it has no treatment. Prevention by anti-rabies vaccination is the only available treatment in a case of dog bite.
Anti-rabies vaccine, available now are very safe.
I advise you to give her the complete schedule of anti rabies vaccination after consulting a doctor immediately.
Hope I have answered your query. For further clarifications regarding the vaccination schedule, consult a paediatrician online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/paediatrician
