Planning to be out in the woods? Going camping or for a hike? If so, it’s always essential to be fully prepared for snake and spider bites and also bee, wasp and hornet stings. Signs and symptoms of a snake bite can be mild to severe and can appear anywhere from minutes to a few hours after you were bitten. At first you may not feel anything, but once you do the symptoms can become pretty severe. Bee, wasp and hornet stings usually begin swelling and showing symptoms more quickly. The Sawyer Snake Bite Kit will provide you with the basic supplies needed to take care of these bites and stings.
The Sawyer Snake Bite Kit is important to grab if you are planning to be out in the woods for work or for leisure. If there is danger of snakes, this kit is crucial to have on hand to help treat snake bites. The booklet included in the kit will explain how to use each of the medical supplies included. Once you begin showing signs of a snake bite the area will become red, painful and swollen. The swelling may even take over the entire affected limb and cause numbness, tingling, burning and possibly even paralysis. Venomous bites can be very damaging to parts of your body and antivenom bites may cause allergic reactions such as rash, itchiness, fever and muscle pains.
If you are stung by a bee, wasp or hornet your first step should be to remove the stinger from the skin. Avoid pushing on the stinger because it forces venom into the skin; just gently scrape the skin with a butter knife or fingernail. A cold press should be applied for 20 minutes to help rid of the swelling and the area should be cleaned with a mild soap and then an antibiotic ointment. The Sawyer Snake Bite kit has sting aid topical swabs, alcohol prep pads and even an extractor pump to remove the stingers from the affected area. This is the perfect solution if you are experience a sting.
