Question: If venomous centipedes bite you on the head does it make it feel more painful than it actually is?

  1. Hi pnemono,

    I dont think it is going to matter if it is a centipede or something else. It is the case that different parts of our body are more sensitive to pain, for example finger tips in comparison to your elbow.
    In addition, we feel pain in a subjective way. The pain you feel from dropping a bowling ball on your foot is going to be different to the way I feel it.

    Having said all that, don’t be letting a centipede bite you on the head… unless you video it for youtube, actually no, still don’t do it.


  2. I agree with Dustin. Being bit hurts doesn’t matter where unless you have this disease.
