First Aid tip of the month
Most reactions to insect bites and stings are mild, causing redness, itching, stinging or/and minor swelling.
For mild reactions
Move to a safe area to avoid more bites or stings.
Remove the stinger.
Wash the area with soap and water.
Apply a cool compress. Use a cloth dampened with cold water or filled with ice to reduce pain and swelling. If the injury is on an arm or leg, elevate it.
Apply a baking soda paste to the bite or sting several times daily until your symptoms go away.
Usually, the signs and symptoms of a bite or sting disappear in a day or two. If not even if your reaction is minor go for medical help.
When to seek emergency care
Call your local emergency number if the bitten/stung person experiences:
Swelling of the lips, eyelids or throat
Dizziness, faintness or confusion
Nausea, cramps or vomiting
Take these actions immediately while waiting for medical help:
Ask the person if he or she is carrying an EpiPen to treat an allergic attack.
If the person says he or she needs to use an autoinjector, ask whether you should help inject the medication.
Loosen tight clothing and cover the person with a blanket. Don't give him or her anything to drink.
If the person is vomiting, position him or her to prevent choking.
Begin CPR if the person shows no signs of circulation, such as breathing, coughing or movement.
