Wow look at the dates on the posts here... really dead. I figured I’d post this here instead of the general ven forum anyhow... I am curious to get information about persons who have been bitten (in my case EDR) and the reports of developing some sensitivity to either a second bite or is it a sensitivity to the antivenom? Where a subsequent bite is more of a problem than the first? Not that I am planning to get bit again (wasn’t planning on the first either) but is there more of a danger to me to maintain a non-venomoid because of the first bite? By the way, it was twenty years ago, but pretty severe at the time, and no, I wasn’t allergic to the serum. Not to add ammunition to the pro-venomoiders out there but it could be something I haven’t heard as a legitimate concern for “once bitten” to be “quite shy” (old Great White fan) regarding getting back on the horse.
