Without damage to the skin, the virus will not enter muscle or nerve cells, which are tropic for rabies. Therefore, simply licking the skin is safe.

Infection with the rabies virus occurs when the virus enters the human bloodstream - most often through the bites of sick animals. If the skin is not damaged (wounds, cuts), infection will not occur.
