Already use baking soda and soaked in warm water mixed with detol. But it’s not flat yet. What drugs should I take? Do you need to take antibiotics?
Hello Ani Septiani Muchtar, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Please note that a diagnosis can only be made by direct physical examination and support if there are indications. However, based on your statement, these symptoms can be caused by an allergic reaction to bee sting toxins, or irritation from bee stings. Symptoms that appear immediately after a bee sting let alone felt severe (for example accompanied by swelling, tightness, etc.) must be immediately taken to the nearest emergency room, because allergic reactions that take place quickly and large can be life threatening and requires immediate treatment with drugs that are injected into blood vessels, such as epinephrine drugs, antihistamines and anti-inflammatory groups.
Symptoms that are not so severe and not life-threatening can be overcome with oral medication, in the form of antihistamines and anti-inflammatory groups. These medicines require a doctor's prescription. Therefore, consult a doctor immediately. To reduce fever, take paracetamol (can be purchased freely) before seeing a doctor. If there is an indication the doctor will also give topical medication containing anti-inflammatory and / or antibiotics to prevent secondary infections from bacteria.
Not recommended to give oil, garlic or baking soda to the wound. Wash the wound thoroughly with soap and clean water, cover with gauze, and consult a doctor.
