In our country, only the bite of a viper is dangerous.
Gestures previously recommended (tourniquet, incision, ice ...) are not recommended and may even be aggravating. The use of antirepine serum is also controversial.

It is now advisable to clean the wound with soap and a local antiseptic and take the child to the emergency room where the treatment will be adapted according to the gravity.
