Profile: once bitten
- Having read the treatment of a centipede bite,I would like to add my recent experience with been bitten by these creatures of pain.Correct me if i,m wrong here, but a medic told me this post-bite. Apply hot water,as hot as you can stand without burning your skin, to nulify the protein toxin they inject into you.I tried an ice pack and suffered 3-4 hrs of excrciating pain and was left with a extremely swollen hand and arm from the bite for two days! They also love to hide indoors in clothing which is how i got bitten. Hope this helps any future recipients of these nasties.
