Hi all....

Just began working with a woman bit on the arch of the foot by a cottonhead snake two times. Venom travelled to just above the knee, she recieved anti venom 45 minutes after bite. Treating for edema loss of motion etc.

Any experience out there? Questions such as how long until her body is rid of venom? When can she return to exercise and not risk vascular inflammation?

She also has a very interesting patterning of dots on the dorsum of her foot...any thoughts? Bite in South Carolina...

Good questions for the Docs that post on this forum. Sounds like a great case study for you to put out. Don't hear of anything like that down here.
