Bites and Stings

Millions of the pests and insect’s species are find in earth, but not all bites or stings by these species are the same. When we are beaten and or stung by any of the insects or pests, then we will need various first aid treatment and intensive medical care depending on what type of insect/pest and or animal has bitten or stung us. Some species can cause more destruction than others. Some people also have allergies/infections that raise the serious HSE risk of a serious reaction.

Here’s how to perceive and treat the symptoms of bites and stings from insects, spiders, and snakes.

If we look in wide scenario, nearly everyone has been bitten or stung by an insect at one time or another and unaccountable human daily get stung or bitten. Whether we’ve been stung by a mosquito, fly, bee, wasp, ant, or other bug, insect bites and stings generally cause a mild reaction. Our body reacts to venom/poisons or other proteins that insects inject into you or transfer to your body through their saliva. This can result in symptoms at the workplace of the insects/pests’ bite or sting, such as:

  1. Redness
  2. Swelling
  3. Pain
  4. Itching

The severity of our symptoms can different, depending on the type of insect/pest that bites or stings us. Some of us also establish a severe allergic reaction to insect stings or bites. Bee and wasp allergies are particularly very general. A severe allergic reaction can cause us as:

  • Hives
  • Abdominal Cramps
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Swelling of our Face, Lips, or Throat
  • Breathing Problems
  • Shock

If we or someone from us know begin to experience these symptoms shortly after being bitten or stung by an insect, call [EMERGENCY HELPLINE] or local First Aid Emergency Authority. A serious allergic reaction that affects multiple parts of OUR body is called anaphylaxis. It can be life-threatening and even death if not treated immediately.

If we, our workers at the workplace, our family at the home or any personnel near us ever had a severe reaction to an insect bite or sting, we should ask our ask doctor about allergy testing. If we been diagnosed with a serious allergy reaction, then our doctor should prescribe medication for such bites and sting named epinephrine. We can utilize a preloaded epinephrine auto-injector such as EpiPen to inject the medication in our outer thigh muscle. It acts very swiftly to raise your blood pressure level, trigger our heart, and reduce swelling of our airways. We should carry such type of medicine (EpiPen) with us at all times, particularly when we are far from any medical facility, or such areas where we might face such type of various venous insects.
