Insect Bites And Stings

Prevention is better than cure. If you are prone to nasty bites use an insect repellent. These are available at your chemist.

Antihistamine tablets from the chemist will usually relieve most symptoms. Bee stings should be scraped away rather than plucked to avoid squeezing more poison into the wound.
Stings inside the throat can cause dangerous swelling. Go straight to the nearest casualty department.
