It depends on the snake and I'd just go to an emergency room for treatment, immediately.

Administration od anrivenin specific to the snake bite and antibiotics are usually prescribed with very close monitoring by physicians for reactions to both treatmentsand for signs of infection do to the body reaction to the toxin. Most nakes in the United States have a hemotoxic venom, it wreaks havoc on the body's tissues, except for the coral snake which is a neurotoxic venom.
