Symptoms of snake bite

Snake bite symptoms may vary depending on what type of snake bit you. However, some general symptoms accompany many snake bites.

General Symptoms

Snake bites can result in some common, general symptoms, including:

  • Puncture wounds from the bite
  • Swelling, pain, or bruising
  • Redness or darkening skin color
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sweating, fever, or chills
  • Weakness, dizziness, or fainting
  • Numbness
