BITE AND STING FIRST AID

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

If stung by a bee, flick the sting out as soon as pos­si­ble to re­duce the amount of venom in­jected.

If bit­ten by a tick, do not forcibly re­move it. Use an ether-con­tain­ing spray like Elasto­plast Sport Cold Spray which freeze-dries the tick and kills it in­stantly, pre­vent­ing it from in­ject­ing more al­ler­gen-con­tain­ing saliva.
