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.
