Ouch ouch ouch!!!

About an hour ago I was in the garden weeding and was stung by a scorpion on my ring finger.OMG the pain !!!!!I went all sort of hot and cold and faint.!!

Screamed my way into the house where Nik thought I was joking till I said I thought I was about to die.Never felt pain like it.!!!!Antihistamines,an ice pack:14: my hand held lower than my heart and a lie down and it still fookin kills.

It was a little brown scorpion are these poisioness?????

I seem to have rather a raised vein going up my left arm!!!!!(Poision)???????


Help.!!!!!!
Should Nik get my insurance policy out lol .

I know im trying to be brave but God it hurts.

Yep they definitely nip a bit. I've been stung 3 times.

Don't use ice on it, it'll make it sting more.

Try to keep your finger in vinegar or ammonia to ease the pain.

If the pain gets any worse or you begin to hyper-ventillate, get to hospital. There's no anti-venom as such, but they need to make sure that you don't go into shock.

On average the pain goes away after about 18 hours but the nerves will still "tingle" for weeks after.

Found this on a web site Maggie...

Scorpion bites - find the bugger that got you, pinch off his tail and eat him, or if you are not a fan of this cure (which does work), an immediate cold shower, with a large intake of tequila or mescal...

or this....

7. INSECT BITE OR STING: -

For scorpion sting, applying juice of mango leaf on the spot and given the leaf decoction to consume is a very effective and easy cure.

Tulsi or holy basil leaves juice given orally and applied on the spot of sting an effective curative for any sting or bite.

For wasp sting or some insect bite, rubbing lemon piece or onion slices with force is useful in decreasing the effect of poison.

If there is swelling on the spot of any bite or sting, applying dry ginger paste with curd (little warm) is very effective to subsides the swelling quickly.

Rubbing fenu greek powder over the area of the stings or bite also removes the harmful effects of the poison.

And there's a bit on here might help... got any turmeric..?

Turmeric - The Golden Goddess

Good luck Maggie... what you need is someone to kiss it better... :) lol:30::3::blowkiss:

just foundthis on net doctor

Treatment of a scorpion sting
Pain at the site of the sting can sometimes be limited with an ice cube.
Painkilling injections (morphine-based painkiller) may be required and a doctor should therefore be consulted. In the case of more marked symptoms, treatment must be given as for snake bites, and the patient must receive medical treatment as quickly as possible.
There is antiserum for scorpion venom. Treatment must be overseen by a doctor

Putting ice on the sting site for more than a few minutes can damage the nerve endings in the finger.


Maggie,

Try to drink at least a litre of water before going to bed as you'll have sweated that out in the first hour or so. Sounds as if you're over the worst of it now but you don't want to get de-hydrated and wake up with a bangin' headache.
