WELLtips: Emergency Care In Case of Bee Sting
Posted Feb 10 2009 10:57am
What do you do if your child is stung by a bee? Don't panic...and follow these important steps.
Move away from the bees.
Remove the stinger as soon as possible any way you can.
The stung child may be allergic to bee stings (check for a
WELLtag clothing label
, or other medical alert items). If so, ask her to point out where she keeps an EpiPen and use it.
If the child does not have an EpiPen call 911.
Some children do not find out they are allergic to bee stings until the first time they are stung;
know the symptoms of an allergic reaction
A sting can be life-threatening if it is inside the mouth or throat, or if there are multiple stings. Call 911 in these cases.
If the child is not allergic to bee stings, treat the sting with an ice pack and acetaminophen; itching can be treated with antihistamine cream or calamine lotion.
