I strapped a used frozen tea bag to the scorpion sting and kept it on for several hours. Pain gone within 30 minutes, no redness or swelling. I keep my used teabags, after squeezing out most of the liquid, in a zip sandwich bag in the freezer. The cold helps right away, and the tea draws out or reduces the venom. Also use for fire ant stings, wasps, etc. Bleach or ammonia dabbed on immediately helps neutralize the acid of the sting, but I've been using tea bags exclusively this summer. God bless.
