How long does it take for the bees to rest assured?

Hornets are the collective name for thousands of social insects of the wasp family, which vary in size and toxicity from species to species. Small hornets, for example, are as toxic as bees, while large hornets, such as golden hornets, can easily kill humans.
  • I. Toxicity discussion
  The harm of wasp venom to human body can be roughly divided into two aspects. One is that high-dose bee venom can cause hemolysis, bleeding and neurotoxicity, and harm the heart, kidney and nervous system; the other is allergic reaction caused by phospholipase, hyaluronidase and other allergens rich in bee venom. But low dose of bee venom can improve the nervous system, cardiovascular system and blood circulation system.
  • 2, poisoning time
  After being stung by a wasp, the affected area will immediately appear pain, and after a few minutes, the stung area will appear local abnormalities such as redness, swelling, itching, etc. In severe cases, there will also be systemic abnormalities such as edema, acute renal failure, and even shock. In addition, the poisoning symptoms of different species of bees after being stung will be different, for example, small wasp stings can heal themselves within 1 to 3 days. Stings by large hornets can last for more than a week or longer.
  • 3. Allergic reactions
  Wasp venom is rich in allergens such as hyaluronidase and phospholipase A2. People who are allergic to bee venom will have allergic reactions within 24 hours after being stung by bee venom. In mild cases, skin flushing, nausea, vomiting, itching and other abnormalities may occur; in severe cases, chest tightness, breathing difficulties, anaphylactic shock and even death may occur. Therefore, it is necessary to closely observe whether there is an allergic reaction after being stung by a wasp.
  • 4. Handle it correctly
  After being stung by hornets, proper treatment should be done to reduce the symptoms of poisoning. The specific treatment method is to carefully check whether there are any toxic needles left in the stung area, then rinse the stung area repeatedly with a weak acidic solution such as vinegar to neutralize the toxicity, and finally apply some snake medicine or Chinese herbs such as purslane, dandelion, and lobelia to reduce swelling and pain relief. However, if you have an allergic reaction, take oral anti-allergy medication and go to the hospital immediately.
  • 5. Precautions
  1, be sure to stay away from the hive immediately after being stung to avoid being stung again, at the same time, protect the head and heart with clothing, etc., and then stop to carefully check the sting situation after running to a relatively safe area.
  2. If there is no obvious abnormality within 24 hours after being stung by a wasp, the problem is not large. At this time, you only need to follow the conventional bee sting treatment method to deal with it, but if there is obvious abnormality, you should immediately go to the hospital to find a doctor.
  3, after being stung by the bee to closely observe whether there is allergic reaction, if there is mild allergy, oral anti-allergy drugs can be taken, but if there is chest tightness, breathing difficulties and other serious allergic reactions, you should go to the hospital immediately.
