Damage + infection
The venom from the bite will cause cells within the tissue to rupture and die within the area of the bite.
This will cause the body’s defensive mechanism to turn on, and cause inflammation and pain at the sight. The other cause could be infection. Use polymem pink dressing with k-tape. With polymem no need to wash wound - very good for inflammatory wound. K-tape you can get from sports authority.
