Even the hand of compassion is stung when it strokes a scorpion.
Danger signals and symptoms
The majority of scorpions are harmless to
humans, although the sting is extremely
painful and will require painkilling treatment.
The following may be observed in cases of
moderate to more serious poisoning:
malaise, sweating, heart palpitations,
rise in blood pressure, salivation, nausea,
vomiting and diarrhoea.
These symptoms should be treated in a
similar way to snake bites, and a doctor
should be consulted as quickly as possible.
hyperacute (typically allergic) reactions in the
form of blurring of consciousness,
unconsciousness, convulsions, fall in blood
pressure, shock and consequently the threat
of death may occur.
