Emergent help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby wtwt5237 » Tue Aug 14, 2007 2:16 pm

A few weeks ago, I was bitten by a dog. The wound was very small, but caused a little bit of blood seeping onto the skin. It was on my leg. I forgot to wash the wound, I mean that I dealt nothing with the bitten part. Of course I received bacterin injection in 2 hours.
Is it possible that I caught a lyssa? Today I am not feeling well.
Thank you for your answer.

Really if you're feeling ill you should ask a doctor, not an online forum...

posterA might say you're fine
posterB might say you probably have rabies
posterC might think you're going to turn into a werwolf

And none of those might help... So really go see a professional IRL (in real life).

Agreed, should also check the owner, if it has no owner, you really should be scared.

Animal bites are serious, and should be treated as such. I am with the last two posters, go seek medical attention.
And just in case poster C is correct, I am going to buy some garlic :)
