Bite! - Any idea what creature made this?


Recommended Posts

Foot, doesn't hurt (unless I press on it), no swelling, not even sure when it happened.

 

Treatment? It got Betadine when I noticed it. 

 

1 Baht coin for scale.

By the viciousness of the bite, I reckon it might be a moderator.  

Good advice. If the OP suddenly has feelings for a full English breakfast, get it sorted ASAP.

Probably you <deleted>... it off and straight came the revenge.

It looks a lot more like puncture wounds instead of a bit. When working in the yard/garden...I always seem to get stuff like that with no explanation. The bites (from tiny ants mainly always itch) so easy to tell the difference. Any barbed wire or metal fencing on your property ?

@tonray nope, it happened sometime yesterday a normal workday in the office although I did walk round to a contractors Mo Chit offices (about 10 minutes).

 

No garden activities except wandering out to feed the carp after work. The grass needs cutting so something could have been lurking and got disturbed.

 

I noticed when I jumped in the shower in the evening.

 

I'll just keep an eye on it, if anything unusual happens it's off to the doc.

looks like three sets of a double bite or puncture and the gap between the teeth or whatever is only a few millimeters apart. 

Pretty hard to distinguish what it was ... see how it goes for a few hours and if it gets any swelling or pain go straight to the hospital.

Assuming that is the bottom of your foot, my Thai gardener friend (who had suffered most every sort of wound) says it was something inanimate. Not likely to be any consequences as long as your tetanus shots are up to date.

Yeah, I wasn't clear, it's on the top. Tetanus is up to date but thanks for the reminder.

Snake bite ...... 3 strikes.

2 straight on, then 1 at an angle as you moved away.

Let's hope it wasn't venomous, or if it was they were 'dry' strikes.

that's what it looks like to me.   Watch it very very carefully and monitor your own feelings. I would get them checked anyway.

I've had these double puncture bites about three times, but not idea what they are. They last a few days, giving only mild irritation, but I do put iodine on them.

 

Only ever had them on my arms, so doubt if they were from a snake, as getting down to ground level is quite difficult for me.
