FAQ & Information
If you have been bit by an ant, you might get some pain and swelling at the site of the sting. Ants can inject a type of venom via their bite, and they can sting several times. Some people might be allergic to ant venom – they could develop a rash and have difficulty breathing. Some might collapse (this is known as anaphylaxis, call 000 immediately in Australia and 911 in the USA).
If you have only mild pain and swelling, you can take paracetamol in recommended doses to ease the pain. Apply Sooth-it Gel to help relieve the itch.
If you have a severe reaction to any kind of bite, go to your doctor or to the nearest emergency department immediately. Make sure you remove the insect carefully first. If it’s dead, keep it so your doctor can identify it.
Bee stings have barbs on the end of them, which stay in the skin with the venom gland. The bee dies after injecting the sting.
You will feel severe pain at the site of the sting, which will usually swell up very quickly.
If you’re allergic to bee venom, you may be at risk of a severe reaction to bee stings. You might develop a widespread rash, have difficulty breathing and collapse (anaphylaxis).

FIRST AID FOR MINOR BURNS
The majority of burns are minor and can be treated at home or in a doctor’s clinic.
• If possible, remove jewellery and clothing from around the injury.
• If the burn is very painful, it is probably superficial. You must act quickly to reduce further injury to the skin. Immediately cool the area under cold running water until the skin returns to normal temperature (up to 20 minutes for a thermal burn, at least 20 minutes for a chemical burn or 30 minutes for a bitumen burn). If this is not possible apply a cold-water compress. Do not use iced water as this can worsen the injury.
• Cover the burn with clean, sterile (if possible), non-stick material.
• For localised burns, cold water compresses changed frequently can be useful.
• If the burn is larger than a 20 cent coin, see your doctor or go to the emergency department of your local hospital.
Once the burn starts to heal apply Sooth-it Gel to help relieve the itching and aid in the healing process.
