Got stung by a 7i male R.junceus the other day.

I immediately took 1 aspirin and 1 anithistamine tablet just to make sure hehe..

There was immediate sharp pain in the site of the sting (my left hand, ring finger) that lasted for like 4 minutes then subsided to an a very irritable itchy feeling on my whole left hand up my wrist in about 4-5 hours. My left hand was very tender to touch. Not really swollen but kinda tight-looking and was hard to clench.

Over all side effects subsided within 16 hours.

Some say it was a less-impact sting while others say it was a dry sting lol

sure. i've noticed that though they have the same venom level, r.junceus sting is more painful than a h. hottentotta sting
