How To Treat Hawk Tarantula Stings That Have Swollen?
During the afternoon. I have just been stung by a flying animal, I don’t think bees are. Then I searched the internet, it turns out the name was tawula hawk. It feels like being pricked by a needle, it hurts around the sting point. Then I apply eucalyptus oil. 5 minutes later the point of the sting swelled (like a bump), in the middle there is a red sting. Is this sting harmless? How to overcome the side effects of this sting? I’m afraid something will not happen. thanks.

When stung, tarantulas can release certain chemical substances that trigger inflammatory reactions in the body. Inflammatory reactions that arise due to the sting of this tarantula can vary in range, can be limited to the stung area, but can also spread almost to the whole body. Local inflammatory reactions usually include pain, swelling, redness, itching, and warmness when touched. However, in more severe cases, systemic complaints can also occur, such as shortness, palpitations, rapid pulse, muscle cramps, weakness, cold sweat, dizziness, nausea, to decreased consciousness.
To prevent this dangerous condition, we recommend that you consult yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist, especially if you have a systemic complaint as mentioned above. If possible, bring a tarantula that stings you so that the potential danger can be identified by your doctor. Thus, your doctor can certainly give you the appropriate treatment
At this time, you don't need to worry too much. Wash with clean water and antiseptic soap from the tarantula sting. In swollen areas, you can compress it with ice cubes, not holding it with dirty hands. Drink more and eat nutritious food. If the pain is very disturbing, you can take the medicine Paracetamol first to overcome it.
Hope this helps ...
