  • If the bite appears infected (redness with or without pus, warmth, fever, or a red streak that spreads toward the body), see a doctor.
    Shortness of breath
    Chest tightness or pain
    Sensation of the throat closing or difficulty speaking or swallowing
    Faintness or weakness
    Infection (If the wound appears infected and you are not able to reach your doctor, seek care at a hospital.)

  • When a bite is worse the second day than the first, you NEED to go see a doctor.
