Health Tip: Insect Sting First Aid

(HealthDay News) -- For most insect stings, a person can be treated at home, says MedlinePlus. For non-severe reactions, first aid is as follows:

  • Do not use tweezers. Scrape a straight-edged object across the stinger for removal.
  • Wash the site with soap and water.
  • Apply ice on the site for 10 minutes.
  • Take an antihistamine, or apply cream.
  • Watch for signs of infection or severe allergic reaction.

Never apply a tourniquet or give the person a stimulant medication, aspirin or other pain medicine unless ordered by a doctor.

If a person shows signs of a severe allergic reaction -- including trouble breathing, coughing, wheezing, uncontrolled sneezing, congestion or tightness in the lungs -- seek immediate medical attention.
