A few stings are normally harmless to an adult, but anyone suffering multiple stings from a ‘rock bee’ attack should consult a doctor or homeopath. Best advice in event of an attack is either to escape at speed, or to remain as still as possible, ideally with hands or clothing covering the face.
In the event of any bite, however superficial, contact a doctor as quickly as possible (latest within 24 hours) in case anti-rabies injections are required. For more details click here.
Very painful, but no species deadly to normal/healthy adults exist in the area. A sting to a child may be more serious, depending on age/size, so medical advice should be taken; likewise if an adult starts showing any allergic reaction. Use Lexin if available, or seek homeopathic relief.
In the event of a bite from a known venomous snake, go straight to the General Hospital, Ph. 0413-2336050 in Puducherry or Jipmer Hospital, Ph. 0413-2372381, where anti-snake bite serum is available.
