Suddenly woke up at 2:30 A.M. from a stinging scorpion. I did the following and within 48 hours all symptoms were GONE!
First, I took 3 Benedryl tablets total 75mg. Then applied soaked cotton balls of Hyland's Tincture of Arnica until all the swelling disappeared. Took less than 30 minutes. Taped the cotton ball to my chest and went back to bed. The pain kept me from sleeping for about 2 hours. Finally nodded off around 5:00 A.M.
When I got up the pain (feels like a knife in your body) still present and bite area red but no swelling. I then applied 3" ball of red clay mixed with organic apple cider vinegar and wrapped the area with a light cotton band. (I used a white gauze kitchen towel.) Changed the clay/vinegar every 4 hours.
Continued for 24 hours even thru the night. Next morning I took a warm, not hot, epsom salt(4#) bath with lavender. Soaked for 20 minutes. Rested all day feeling very hung over from the Benedryl. Drank lots of water including lemon/baking soda.
I also put my hands on the bite area (just 3" below my heart) I sent loving gratitude to my body. Then did the same to my liver for processing the poison. Following morning I woke up feeling great. No redness. No pain.
