How Do You Revoke A Bee Sting On Your Head?
My head was stung by a bee, precisely at the top, how do I pull out the sting if it’s not found? Do you just compress it with cold water?
Hello Wahyu, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Bee stings are generally harmless and can be handled alone at home. Some of the methods of handling yourself that can be done at home are as follows:
Pinch and press out the stung area with your fingers, especially if the bee stinger is left on the skin. Do not try to release it by pulling with a finger or with a pair of tweezers, this recommended pressing motion is also to help remove toxins that might be present in the sting skin.
Wash the area of the skin that has been stung with shampoo and running water completely clean
Compress the stung area with cold compresses to help relieve the swelling that occurs
If you feel pain in the area where you stung you can help relieve it by taking paracetamol or ibuprofen drugs according to the dosage on the package
Avoid scratching the stung area
Contact your doctor if you feel the complaint has not improved or is getting worse
Although in general this sting can be cured with therapy done at home, keep in mind also that the bee sting is also at risk of causing allergic reactions in some people to cause complaints such as red rashes on the skin, hives, itching, swelling in other parts of the body that are not stinging, shortness of breath, or until a loss of consciousness. If you feel any of these symptoms, immediately go to the hospital emergency room for immediate treatment by a doctor.
I hope this helps.
