Health tips for children



Insect Bites and Stings


Unless your child has an allergy, most insect bites and stings cause minor redness, swelling and itching.
If you can see the stinger in your child's skin, you should use a dull blade or credit card to scrape it out.
Avoid pinching it out, since this can inject more venom into the wound.
If your child was stung by a poisonous spider, snake or if he is having an allergic reaction, you should call your doctor or activate your local emergency medical services for further treatment.
