In brief: See below

Depending on the severity of the symptoms, the bite may only require local wound care done at home up to the worst situation - requiring admission to a hospital.
If the bite becomes red, swollen, warm and painful with possible black central area tissue destruction (necrosis), it may require medical care for secondary infection or debridement of dead tissue.
