Clawed By A Child Who Has Been Bitten By A Rabies Dog?
Good night. My friend’s child has been bitten for 1 week rabies … Then I was nosy for the child. Take care of the child. My child is my claw.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, of course you need to confirm with your friend first, whether the child has received an antirabies vaccine and an injection of rabies immunoglobulin immediately after being bitten by a dog? If not, immediately suggest your friend to take his child to the hospital that provides both.
Basically, many rabies viruses are found in saliva or saliva. Therefore the main method of transmission of the rabies virus is through bites. This virus also starts to enter the saliva when the virus has entered its final stage of development (meaning that symptoms of rabies have appeared). Therefore, if you just scratched it, rabies will not rub off on you. Transmission from human to human is very rare, and even if this transmission occurs it occurs because of bites from people who are already showing symptoms of rabies.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
