Child Care First Aid How to Treat a Bee Sting

You're wondering how to treat your child's bee sting. My name is Beverly Bitterman, A.R.N.P., Health and Wellness Consultant and I'm here to give you a few tips about how to do that. The first thing that you want to do is to of course, calm your child down. Sometimes it's helpful to give them a glass of water to drink or something like that to distract them and get them to quit crying. Then what you'll want to do is look at the site of the sting and you don't want to pinch out the pincher if it's still in there. What you would.

Do, is if it's say a sting on the arm, is you would take a clean moist cloth and just sort of wipe it down and that will also help make sure that it's clean. Then what you can do is you can mix up a little bit of baking soda and water and make a little paste and put it on there, hold it on there with a wet cloth. You can put something cold on top of that. Maybe even a freezer pad or maybe you have a first aid kit where you could have.

One of these handy dandy instant cold compresses that you can put on top of that baking soda. The other thing that you can do, if your child complains, or perhaps it's several hours after the bee sting and they're still feeling upset and uncomfortable is if they are over about 2 years old, check with your pediatrician to be sure, but you can probably give them an analgesic like Tylenol with an antihistamine in it. So in other words something you might use for a cold could help reduce the inflammation from that bee sting. Of course if your child.

Has any shortness of breath, if the redness is spreading, if it gets to be greater than about two inches wide, you probably ought to consider consulting a pediatrician and see if there's anything else that needs to be done or can be done. In case of any shortness of breath you want to make sure that you get your child quickly to the emergency room. Again my name is Beverly Bitterman a Health and Wellness Consultant and wish you luck in calming your child and getting that sting to go away.

4 Natural remedies for hay fever and allergies

4 Natural remedies for hay fever and allergies Allergies can produce a great deal of suffering. In America alone, around 28 million people suffer from hay fever, and that does not include all the individuals who are allergic to pet dander, dust, foods, and bee stings. Allergies are the result of an immune response gone overboard. Substances like dust, pollen, dust mites, and so forth are not harmful like pathogens. But in the allergic individual, these substances produce an extreme immune response. From debilitating to a mere annoyance, allergy symptoms are no fun.

Thankfully, there is a place for natural remedies in allergy management. Here are some natural approaches that may help reduce allergy symptoms. 1 Ginkgo Have you heard of Ginkgo for memory Interestingly, Ginkgo contains some substances that inhibit a chemical produced by the body during an allergic response plateletactivating factor, or PAF. When your body produces PAF in response to an allergen, the PAF sets off a chain of events that lead to allergic symptoms and inflammation. Inhibiting the PAF means that the allergic response does not get to complete its cycle.

It's like breaking the link in a chain. Ginkgo is generally sold in standardized extract form. Herbalists recommend 60 to 240 milligrams daily, but no more than that. Ginkgo is low in side effects but high in effectiveness. 2 Garlic Garlic contains a substance called quercetin, which can actually be taken as a supplement. Other foods contain quercetin, too, but garlic has high concentrations of this substance. Quercetin is reputed to slow down inflammatory reactions, such as those found in allergic reactions. Onions, too, contain a significant amount of quercetin.

3 Enzymatic Therapy Enzymes or a lack of them are implicated in the development of allergies. At their very basic level, allergens are proteins, and certain enzymes are able to break down proteins before they can incite an allergic reaction. Enzymes can be taken in supplement form, but they may have digestive effects. However, many allergy sufferers find that the side effects are greatly reduced when the enzymes are taken with food. 4 Quercetin Quercetin supplements are often suggested as a treatment for allergies. As noted above, certain foods contain quercetin, too.

How to Use an EpiPen

Epinephrine is the first line of defense to treat anaphylaxis. The sooner the reaction is treated, the less severe it is likely to become. People with severe allergies or a history of anaphylaxis should carry autoinjectable epinephrine with them at all times. Epinephrine typically comes as a singledose prefilled automatic injection device, commonly known as an EpiPen, to be injected into the thigh. Anytime an EpiPen has been used, make sure 911 has been called. The person must seek immediate medical treatment even if they feel better. To administer an EpiPen.

Check the label to confirm that the prescription of the autoinjector is for this person. Check the expiration date of the autoinjector. If it is expired, do not use it. If the medication is visible, confirm that the liquid is clear and not cloudy. If it is cloudy, do not use it. Remove the safety cap. Grip the EpiPen in your hand with the tip pointing downward. Never put your thumb, fingers or hand over the tip. Firmly push the tip into the person's outer thigh until the pen clicks. The needle will go through clothing. Keep the autoinjector.

Firmly pushed against the thigh at a 90 angle. Hold it there for ten seconds. Pull the EpiPen straight out of the leg. Make sure not to pull out at an angle as this could cause a lot of pain and bleeding. If blood comes out, the drug also comes out. Rub the area for about 10 seconds just to help circulate the drug within the muscle of the leg. A second EpiPen may be administered if the symptoms continue or recur. The person will often feel relief from the tightness in the throat fairly quick. It is.

Often normal for the person to experience side effects from the epinephrine. They may include fast or pounding heart shakiness feelings of anxiety dizziness headache Once an EpiPen has been administered, make sure it's given to the medical professionals. In conclusion, allergic reactions are never fun to deal with, and they can usually turn what's supposed to be a fun outing into an enormously scary event. But when you understand how to recognize the signs and symptoms, and then how to treat them, you can feel confident that even if it does happen,.

First Aid for Anaphylaxis First Aid Equipment for Anaphylaxis

So if we were called to a scene for someone who is having difficulty breathing with a possibility of it being from an allergic reaction I am going to show you some of the things that would help us determine how bad this patient is and then later we will go on how to treat it. So initially we are going to show up and its very helpful to us if they have a list of their allergies, if they have a list of their medications that they take and if they have a list of any type of health history any type of health problems they.

Might have had in the past. That's very important information for us and that is something we are going to try and determine immediately. What I have here is this is Life Pack 12 and it's the version that we use. It's a heart monitor but it also does a lot of other great things for us. So first we are going to come up and start talking with the patient. We are going to be looking for the signs and symptoms that we had discussed earlier. We would be looking for any type of rash, anything obvious such as a bee sting or exposure to.

Any type of substance that's maybe somewhat out of the ordinary for this person. Then we are going to have one person that's going to use this. Now what this does, this will take blood pressures for us. If we don't have this we can take blood pressures the old way. We are also going to use a stethoscope. We want to determine their breathing and see how well they're moving air. If they have, as I mentioned earlier, if they have any wheezing, coughing that is going to be something that is going to alert us that this could be a.

Big problem. We are also going to look at their skin color and appearance. This will also take a look at their heart. We always want to take a look at their heart just to make sure that their heart beat is going normally. You can also look at we have oxygen saturation. I'll turn this on and you can see all the categories. We can also read how much oxygen this person is getting. This device here just goes on their finger and it will determine the amount of oxygen.

That's in the blood that's getting circulated. And so that will be helpful also because if they are not getting enough oxygen one of our primary things that we are going to do is give them oxygen to try to make sure that they are moving enough oxygen. So again you check their blood pressure, you will be listening to the lung sounds. You will determine how much oxygen that they are getting and then we would put them on the cardiac monitor and see if their heart's in regular rhythm. If it's too fast, if it's too slow we will see.
