My query is regarding the necessity of rabies treatment for me. Last week, I accidentally disturbed a sleeping dog. It started barking and tried to bite my right hand. I pulled my hand; hence it could not harm me. But, I remember that during this incident its teeth and tongue strongly touched my fingers. I clearly examined the area many times, but I did not see any skin break or scratches. Then I washed the area with hand wash lotion and water. Should I take any post-exposure treatment? I am asking this because the disease is quite frightening. The dog after the incident was very calm. He fell asleep just a few minutes later. All these incidents happened at my campus. Waiting for your response and thanks in advance.

Thank you very much for the reply. The incident happened 13 days ago. It is difficult to watch the dog, as there are a few similar dogs. As I mentioned, I am living on my college campus where there are many dogs. I may not be able to identify the one exactly. Anyway, I see all of them around me, and chances are high that the dog is alive. But, whatever the condition of the dog is, since my skin is unbroken, Am I safe? Is it right? Waiting for your reply.
