I am 20 years old male 5 years ago I was bitten by a dog and later the dog dies I don't know the exact date when my dog dies. So is there any possible treatment that I can take now. From last few months I am depressed and living in fear of death. Please help me. What can I do now. Can any test tell whether I will get rabies in future or not?

Dear lybrate-user, Rabies is a serious disease. You are living for 5 years means, you don't have rabies. You need not test or take treatment for rabies. But you may need treatment for rabies fear (disease phobia) and depression. Please consult a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist.
