What Does a Scorpion Sting Look Like, and How Do You Treat It?

Scorpions are plentiful throughout the desert and can wreak havoc when they make their way onto your property. If you have a scorpion problem, the Las Vegas Pest Control team can help you with scorpion control in Nevada.

Our team can come to your rescue quickly so you can avoid a scorpion sting. Although, if you’ve already been stung, we want you to know what it looks like and how to treat it.

What Does a Scorpion Sting Look Like?

Scorpion stings are painful and can cause various symptoms. Typical scorpion sting symptoms include:

  • Intense pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Slight swelling
  • Warmth

Typically, the area where the scorpion sting occurred looks red with some slight swelling.

Scorpion Sting Treatment

Treating a scorpion sting varies from person to person. Some people see mild symptoms that go away on their own after a short amount of time. At-home treatments you could do after a scorpion sting include:

  • Clean the wound with soap and water.
  • If the pain persists, apply a cold compress. This could help to reduce the pain.
  • Take over-the-counter pain medication.

Other people might experience more severe symptoms. In that case, it is important to seek medical attention. In addition, anyone who is showing signs they are allergic to the sting should seek medical treatment immediately. Like bees, some people are allergic to scorpion stings and could have anaphylaxis. This can cause someone to stop breathing if their airway closes. If this happens, medical professionals will need to treat them.
