Remedy for scorpion sting
Hello, my brother is 11 years old, he was playing in the garden behind our house with his friends. He got scorpion sting on his thigh. He has intense pain, numbness along with tingling effect. There is slight swelling and warmth around the place. Does he need to see a doctor? My parents are not around. At the same time I am not aware of what to do and how to take care of him. There must be some home remedy for scorpion bite. I am looking for methods that can reduce atleast the pain. Please share your information.
@gul Scorpion stings are painful but rarely life-threatening. Most scorpion stings don't need medical treatment. But if symptoms are severe, you may need to receive care in a hospital. You may be given drugs through a vein (intravenously) to treat pain. Scorpion antivenom may be given to children to prevent the development of symptoms. These tips can help keep children safe until they see a doctor: Clean the wound with mild soap and water. Apply a cool compress to the affected area. This may help reduce pain. Don't consume food or liquids if you're having difficulty swallowing. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever as needed. You might try ibuprofen to help ease discomfort.
