What does a vampire bite feel like?
How afraid should you be of a vampire’s bite and does it hurt?
While you should indeed be afraid of being bitten by a vampire, it is not because the vampire bite hurts – actually, a vampire’s bite (unlike a werewolf’s bite which can be extremely painful) really does not hurt much at all. Vampire teeth are designed with very sharp points so that when they bite into their prey, it is almost a painless process. In addition, the whole design of a vampire’s attack is such that it is intended to minimize mess, pain, and struggle from the victim. Vampires exude an attitude which almost immobilizes their victims during the attack. This is to make the attack and bite as efficient as possible – the ultimate result of which is almost a painless clean wound for the victim. If you are being bitten by a vampire, keep this in mind. If you are not already immobilized by fear and the vampire’s influence, do not struggle, as this will allow the wound to remain clean and small, as a vampire bite is designed to be.
While being bitten, the victim will feel little more than a pinprick. Because of how light and unpainful the process is – and how it can almost looks like a kiss from afar – some people have actually referred to the vampire bite as a vampire kiss. It is not until after the bite is over that the pain sets in. The wound, which is only small because of the size and design of the vampire’s teeth, will become red and swollen one to two days after the bite if it is not kept clean. This is when pain and infection set in – sometimes even so extreme that a victim will find it hard to turn his / her head. The most important advice therefore for any vampire bite victim is to keep the vampire wound clean immediately after the bite, otherwise the wound – like any other wound – can become red, swollen, and infected resulting in it being extremely sensitive to the touch, and quite painful.
