Rabies Concern following contact with a stray.

Resolved Question:

Hi Doctor,
Today I have had a touch with a stray dog. May be a little touch with his nail. So I went to the doctor. He gave me a rabipur. I have to take 0, 3, 7 because in 2011 I completed one full five times course. Now the thing is at the time of injection accidentally nidle slipped and maximum .3 ml (instead of 1 ml). In that case if I take another dose of rabipur tomorrow and consider tomorrow as 0 day, will it be an overdose?

The decision needs to made depending upon your wound. If there was only a touch and there is no visible wound, you need not take it again. You can continue normally and take the Day 3.

On the other hand is there is a wound especially in the hand or face, you can re take the dose the next day , considering it as the new Zero day.

Hope this helps
Please feel free to ask followup questions.
Thank you

Hi Doctor,
Thank you very much for your kind reply. So there will be no chance of overdose it seems.Its a only little touch with the nail but for my mental peace it seems better to take the new dose.

Thanking You

If it is only just a touch there is actually no need for the dose. Anyhow there is no chance for overdose perse.

Thank you
