What are some signs of a scorpion sting?
First of all, you should know that all scorpions are venomous. They carry venom to paralyze their prey, and protect themselves.
A scorpion sting is painful and usually felt at immediate contact and they often sting multiple times in a row. Scorpions sting when they feel threatened. It is common to be stung when you are not expecting it; Many times you could have threatened a scorpion without even knowing it. Some examples would be something like;
Stepping on one, reaching into a dark place (like a bag) that they are inside of, sitting on one, putting on a shoe (that they are inside of), some people are stung during their sleep when a scorpion will climb on the bed and feel threatened when you move etc.
A scorpion’s sting could be described as feeling like:
1. A sharp Pain
5. Sometimes swollen throat or tongue
7. Tender to touch
8. Muscle Cramps
A scorpion sting could be described as looking like (please keep in mind that each person’s body reacts differently);
3. Bruising discoloration
If you have been stung by a scorpion it is important to watch your symptoms to make sure that you aren’t having an allergic reaction. A lot of people will put ice on the site of the sting for some relief.
