Bitten by dog
I have bitten by a stray dog on my right leg calf 11 days ago. I took ARV 3 out of 4 shots, still one pending. I tried to search the dog which has bitten me but I couldn't find it. Should I have to take rabies immunoglobulin ? My wound is grade2 scratch with no bleeding. Also can I have usual sex life ? Thanks appreciate your help
