If the burns are small:
- Cut up a raw potato or carrot, and place it on the burn.
- Pour cold water on the burn area, and sprinkle with salt. Wait for the salt to dry and fall away.
If the burns are serious (blisters or peeling skin):
Apply a thick layer of Panthenol spray or an antibiotic cream to the burn area, and only attach a bandage. Otherwise, the material will stick to the wound.
You need to cleanse your body of the poison and neutralize the toxins as quickly as possible. Apart from the standard approach of rinsing with a solution containing manganese or using activated charcoal, you can also try the following:
- Brew 2 tsp of ground ginger root in 600 ml of boiling water, mix together, and then filter. Drink 50 ml of this infusion warm during the course of the day.
- Boil 3-5 tbsp of cinnamon for 5 minutes, and then filter it. Drink 2-3 cups of the resulting brew while it’s still hot.
Don’t drink alcohol if you’ve been poisoned. Its effects on the body will only make things worse.
Only bees leave their stinger behind. If you’ve been stung by a wasp, don’t try to find the stinger — by picking at the sting, you’ll only give yourself an infection. To remove a bee’s stinger, use an ordinary plastic card: place it at an angle of 45° in front of the stinger, and, pressing a little on the skin, pass it over the area of the sting. Then treat the wound with an ordinary antiseptic product.
