In patients who have a history of animal bites, the risk of rabies infection can be a possible cause of the complaints they feel. Infections are often transmitted by cats, rather than dogs, it is possible that the dog's care and health is more concerned by the owner, besides that wild animals can also be at risk of causing rabies.
In rabies infection, complaints of rabies symptoms can appear in the range of 2 weeks to 3 months after the animal bite. Therefore, with this risky period of time, you should recommend consulting a neurologist, especially if you have symptoms of auditory or visual hallucinations.
The doctor will perform an immediate examination, and blood tests if necessary. Handling and treatment will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.
That's the information we can convey, read also rabies.
