“They are small scratches and have been washed with soap for a while and the dog has never been vaccinated,” he said again.
Doctor Nadia further explained the impact of delaying taking the child to a hospital or health facility (Faskes), so that the child died.
For the record, if someone is bitten by a dog or other wild animal, immediately do first aid. For example, if bitten by a dog, you should immediately wash the bite wound with soap/detergent in running water for 15 minutes, then apply an antiseptic and the like.
The next step, immediately take it to the health center or hospital to wash the wound again and get the Anti-Rabies Vaccine (VAR) and Anti-Rabies Serum (SAR) according to the indications.
