Is possible that I got infected by rabies?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I got by a street dog 8 days ago in Varanasi.

The bite couldn't break my pants, there's no hole or scratch on it.

The skin doesn't look broken. It looks more a bit smashed (I have a picture if you need it). But I am not sure, it could be an abrasion. There was no blood at all. I also had some disinfectant after 1 hour and it didn't hurt.

I got after 4 hours the first anti-rabies shot and then I got the second one. (Same vaccine, different brands).

I am skeptical about the vaccines conservation methods here in India, but it's a personal feeling.

Is possible that I got infected by rabies?

this is how my skin looked like:
