BITES AND STINGS

What is it?
Bites and stings can range from mild and almost unnoticed to the extremely serious. There are two types of bites- those from non-poisonous creatures such as dogs and cats and those from venomous creatures such as snakes and spiders. Stings are caused by insects and some fish.

Danger Signs: if the victim of a bite or sting shows signs of acute distress such as facial swelling, difficulty in breathing or extreme pain, call a doctor immediately or take the victim to hospital.

Bee stings: Remove bee stings with tweezers. Do not squeeze the poison bag as this will release more poison to the skin. To relieve pain and swelling, apply a solution of bicarbonate of soda. See a doctor immediately if there is a severe allergic reaction, for example facial swelling of difficulty in breathing.

Scorpion Stings: Most Scorpion stings cause a burning pain which lasts up to 30 minutes. Apply an ice pack to relieve the pain. Usually no further treatment is necessary. Stings by the parabuthus species are serious and a doctor should be consulted immediately. Symptoms are sharp intense burning pain, increased salivation, difficulty in breathing, rapid heartbeat, muscle spasm and convulsions.

Mosquito Bites: Mosquito bites cause mild inflammation and itching. Apply calamine lotion to relieve the itching.

Tick Bites: Do not try to pull the tick off the skin. Touch it with a burning match and it will fall off. Consult a doctor immediately in the case of severe headache and fever.

Snake Bites: Reassure the victim and stop him from panicking. Keep limb still. Apply a firm crepe bandage to the limb. Make sure the bite site is bandaged. Immobilise the limb further by applying a splint. If the trunk is bitten (rare), apply a firm pressure without restricting breathing. Get medical help immediately or take the victim to hospital.

Spider Bites: The bite ok a black widow or button spider is the only spider-bite that causes serious symptoms.
