Scorpion bite "baby toe"
- Name: Doris Prince
Greetings to all those who have concerns with an insect or other bites!
I was recently bitten on the "baby toe" by a 1 1/2 inch Scorpion! The smaller, the more potent the sting!
I was in a poorly lit room, and going to walk out the back door, when I felt like a needle had gone into my toe... I imediatly felt like I was recieving an electric vibrating shock in that very spot on my toe. I flipped on the light and there was that little scorpion! I stepped on it immediately so it wouldnt get the chance to hurt anyone else in my family! I swiftly walked across the room and into the kitchen. I opened up the refridgerator for my bottle of CDS! I poured 1 cup into a bowl and placed 4 ice cubes in to keep it all very cold. I put my foot into that bowl and kept it covered with the icy CDS solution for at least one hour. I sat there in the kitchen and read while feeling the Vibrating Electric feeling in my toe. Soon as I felt enough time was spent, I scooted across the room with my foot still in the bowl, and pulled out the diatameous earth. I then got some more cold CDS, pouring maybe 1/2 teaspoon into 1 tablespoon D.Earth. What ever the amounts are so there is a thick paste. I dried off my foot and applied this to the area that I was bitten, then wrapped it with a CDS moisteded light weight strip of white old cotton Tshirt, and wrapped that in a plastic bag so there would be no dripp or mess... I went to bed and rested. The shocking feeling never left that very place on my toe that I got bitten! I went sleep easily with no pain. In the morning there was no way to find where I got hurt the night before!
One of my friends said someone she knows was bitten by a scorpion, and hurried to the hospital. The bite was on her foot, and the pain was traveling up her leg! They told her that the antidote would cost 3 thousand dollars. She went home hurting. A child that was bitten was affected through her whole body with trouble in her eyes.
I am so very thankful I had CDS ready with the ability to think fast and take care of myself.
Thank you Tons... Jim Humble
