General Care of Bites and Stings

Image of mosquito biting fleshGeneral care of bites and stings:

  • Immediately wash the bite or sting with soap and water if available, or use antiseptic wipes if soap and water are not available.
  • Put an ice pack on the affected area with a cloth barrier between the ice and skin. If treating a bee sting, remove the stinger first (see below).
  • Never attempt to suck out any venom or poison with your mouth!
  • Never apply a tourniquet.
  • Do not use folk remedies or unproven treatments to care for the casualty.
  • Do not give the casualty caffeinated drinks, alcohol, or aspirin.
