cuton my fingers but I ignored it and later realized that my whole
hand was swollen."

any knowledge and just after washing her hair I realized that
something like a snake was moving around my hand which subsequently
"I later rushed to the house wheremy family confirmed that it was
indeed a snake bite. They conveyed me to the hospital but it got worse
and so my family confronted the lady who came to the shop to wash her
hair and she confessed that she was the cause and took me through some
herbal medication before my swollen hand reduced."
