Snake Bites and how to treat Organically
We must have been in a situation where we or our loved ones are bitten by snake or lets say we are not bitten by snake but we need to learn ahead in order to prevent a big problem when it happens.
Well, this writeup is for you.
What are snake bites?
Snakes bite either to capture prey or for self-defense. But since there are so many different types of snakes including both venomous and non-venomous not every snake bite is created equal.
Different species carry different types of venom. The major categories include:
A. Cytotoxins: Cause swelling and tissue damage wherever you’ve been bitten.
B. Haemorrhagins: Disrupt the blood vessels.
C. Anti-clotting agents: Prevent the blood from clotting.
D. Neurotoxins: Cause paralysis or other damage to the nervous system.
E. Myotoxins: Break down muscles.
What are the symptoms of a snake bite?
If you’re bitten by a snake, your symptoms will differ depending on which type of bite it is. If you suffer a dry snake bite, you’ll likely just have swelling and redness around the area of the bite.
But if you’re bitten by a venomous snake, you’ll have more widespread symptoms, which commonly include:
Bite marks on your skin. These can be puncture wounds or smaller, less recognizable marks.
Sharp, throbbing, burning pain around the bite that you may not feel for a little while after the bite. 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.
Redness, swelling and tissue damage, or complete destruction, in the area of the bite.
Abnormal blood clotting and bleeding. Severe bleeding can lead to a hemorrhage or kidney failure.
Low blood pressure, a faster heart rate and a weaker pulse.
Nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, anxiety, headaches, dizziness and blurred vision.
Difficulty breathing, or in serious cases, complete loss of breath.
Increased production of saliva and sweat.
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:
Difficulty speaking due to extreme tightness in the throat and a swollen tongue.
Young children may become very pale.
Constant cough and/or wheezing.
