Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
a history of scorpion stings can cause mild inflammation to be life-threatening, in mild cases, complaints of scorpion stings can recover within 5 minutes, and in cases that are recovering within a few hours. However, in severe cases, it can be life threatening. So that the first treatment that must be done after a scorpion sting is
1. clean with water and soap
2. Clean it with antiseptics, such as alcohol or which contain iodine
3. closure of the wound and binding of the sting area
4. give a cold compress
5. then immediately to the nearest hospital
In severe cases, where scorpion poison affects inflammation of the area of the senagtan and nervous system (neurotoxins) as well as life-threatening, intensive care and administration of anti-toxin are needed to help prevent the risk of clinical conditions that threaten the patient's life.
In general, cases of scorpion stings can be mild to moderate, although it is likely to cause death, but this is very rare. The type of scorpion can be a reference to the risk of the nature of the poison and the risk to health, so that with early medical treatment at the hospital, is expected to help reduce the side effects of the scorpion poison that enters the body.
Some of the side effects of the scorpion poison can be:
1. pain in the sting area and radiating to the associated nervous system
3. bleeding in the sting area
5. disruption of muscle movements
7. burning sensation
8. disturbance of consciousness
9. blurred vision
Therefore, if you currently feel pain and feel a fever, then you should immediately go to the nearest hospital for further treatment. This is needed to get the evaluation and treatment needed for you.
