Penis had to be cut due to spread of infection
Urology Case Reports quoted experts as saying that this in itself is a very rare case of a venomous snake bite on one’s penis. Earlier, there have been cases of snake bites on the back side of the body. The camper was given emergency treatment at a hospital in South Africa, but had to be amputated to prevent penile tissue from decomposing and spreading the poison to other parts.
Doctors in the Netherlands remodel the penis
After nine days of treatment, the Dutch national was sent back to the Netherlands. Where doctors tried to reconstruct the person’s sore tissue with the help of tissue removed from his groin. With the help of these tissues, the doctors repaired the man’s penis a lot. Since then, the person has advised people traveling to African countries to be cautious through a cheeky message.
Snake bite caused ‘meat eating disease’
Doctors told that the patient had a disease called necrosis due to snake bite. It is commonly known as ‘flesh eating disease’. In this, there is a lethal bacterial infection in the tissues under the skin. This also greatly increases the chances of death. These bacteria do not actually eat the meat, but release the toxic substance, which also damages the surrounding tissue.
