11 Signs That Show You’ve Been Bitten By A Snake…Beware!!!

Signs you have an bitten by snale

Welcome home valued reader.

Be informed that if you are bitten by a snake, your symptoms will differ depending on which type of bite it is.

If you suffer a dry snake bite, you will likely just have swelling and redness around the area of the bite. But if you are bitten by a venomous snake, you will have more widespread symptoms, which commonly include:

1. Bite marks on your skin:

These can be puncture wounds or smaller, less recognizable marks.

2. Sharp, throbbing, burning pain around the bite that you may not feel for a little while after the bite.

3. You may also feel pain all the way up whichever limb was affected, such as in the groin for a bite on the leg or the armpit for a bite on the arm. But not everyone feels pain.

For example, a bite from a coral snake can be almost painless at first, but still deadly.

4. Redness, swelling and tissue damage, or complete destruction, in the area of the bite.

5. Abnormal blood clotting and bleeding:

Severe bleeding can lead to a hemorrhage or kidney failure.

6. Low blood pressure, a faster heart rate and a weaker pulse

7. Nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, anxiety, headaches, dizziness and blurred vision.

8. Difficulty breathing, or in serious cases, complete loss of breath.

9. Increased production of saliva and sweat.

10. Weakness in your muscles and numbness in the face or limbs.

If you have an allergic reaction to a snake bite, you could suffer from anaphylactic shock.

Many of the symptoms are the same or very similar to the ones listed above, but more severe. But there are a few additional symptoms, including:

11. Difficulty speaking due to extreme tightness in the throat and a swollen tongue.

Young children may become very pale.
Constant cough and/or wheezing.

Please take note of the above signs.

Thank you.
