Hello Doctor !

Hello,

In addition to completing the rabies post-exposure vaccination schedule, other considerations include: risk of infection (any bite, human or animal, has a high risk of local infection).

You should be very mindful of the appearance of the wound and should you observe evidence suggesting infection (symptoms include but are not limited to - redness, warmth, swelling, increasing pain, fever), you should seek medical care immediately.
