Handling When Exposed To Bee Bites?
Good morning. 3 days ago, I was stung by a bee on my foot. Immediately I pressed around the sting and gave it the flower was still hot after that I gave salt. The result is even my whole body itches and flushes. I was rushed to the ER. Finally, I was injected and took some clorephenamine maleate drugs, methyleprednjsolone, mefenamic acid. Day 2 and 3 around the time it felt very itchy, and the body was sometimes hot. On the 4th day the stung legs came out of the pus. What should I do?
Thank you for the question
Depending on the type of bee and the treatment taken to overcome it, bee sting can be a mild condition, but can also be dangerous. Your action of pressing the sting area, giving it flowers and salt is actually not known to be effective in overcoming symptoms due to bee stings. In fact, in people who are sensitive, this action can make your bee stings irritated, until finally itching, redness, swelling, heat, blisters, and various other complaints appear more severe. Not infrequently, the former bee stings that are not treated with good hygiene experience a secondary infection, resulting in pus and body heat.
With regard to your condition, if after getting treatment from a doctor your condition does not improve in 1-3 days, we recommend that you consult your doctor or dermatologist again. Some types of drugs can be given by doctors, or doctors can also treat wounds on the sting of your suppurating bees. That way, your condition is expected to improve in a few days.
At this time, what should be done:
Keep the sting marks clean and dry Clean the sting marks using sterile gauze soaked with NaCl or povidone iodine liquid. Don't hold the sting with dirty hands, let alone squeeze or stab them. Always use clean, non-tight staples when doing activities. ..
