Severe dog bite

Doctor, My mother got a severe dog bite from our pet dog on her hand. She is not able to move her hand at all. It is a little better now but not fully movable. We have not visited a doctor because she refuses to do so. The dog is vaccinated but we’re still concerned. It has been 4 days and now the hand has swollen up. What does swelling up of the infected part mean and what can we do about it?

  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    I can understand your concern.

    I would suggest you to take her to a hospital and get it dressed by professional nursing staff.

    Also give her tab signoflam and tab rantac 150mg twice a day after food for 3 days.

    If you are not sure about vaccination, You should get her rabies prophylaxis vaccination too.

    Hope this helps.
    Take care!!
