Doctor: last night, I was gently scratched by the dog with my paw. There was no skin damage or bleeding. How long do I wipe it with alcohol, without tingling or burning. In this case, do I need to use rabies vaccine? The grasping position is the front of the right arm. Do you have any problem? Do you need rabies vaccine
If the dog scratched the skin may be infected with rabies virus, it should be vaccinated against rabies virus within 24 hours as soon as possible. It is clear that it has been scratched by the dog without skin damage, and there is no obvious skin damage in the photo. If it can be determined that there is no skin damage, it is not necessary to vaccinate against rabies virus. On the contrary, it is necessary to vaccinate as soon as possible
In this case, there is no need to get rabies vaccine. If there is no skin damage, the possibility of infection is very low. As long as it is disinfected in time, it can be washed repeatedly with clean water and soapy water, and the surface can be wiped with Iodophor and hydrogen peroxide. Pay attention to keep the surroundings clean.
