  • Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. Now in this clip, I'm going to talk to you about

  • bee stings, because bee stings are very common in the summertime during the year. And when

  • you go out in the garden, or go into the woods for camping, you can get a high chance of

  • getting stung. So when you're stung, the best thing you need to do is to immediately remove

  • the stinger from the area that you've been stung, because if the stinger's left behind,

  • that's going to cause all the acute swelling and the really, really painful symptoms as

  • well as the chance of being infected. So here I have a picture of an arm, and on the arm

  • here we have the elbow, the fingers and here's the forearm. Here is a picture of this area

  • that was stung and the blue area here represents the stinger that was left behind by the insect

  • - the bee or the wasp that stung you. And so what you do is, the first thing to do before

  • you do anything else, if you could find a tweezer or something strong if you don't have

  • a tweezer. But if you do have a tweezer, the best thing, of course, is to get one that's

  • got the sharp end versus the blunt end. Because the sharp end is going to make it easier for

  • you to pick out the stinger. But if you don't have a tweezer, of course when you go outdoors

  • you don't carry a tweezer with you, then you can just use the sharp end of the under part

  • of your small fingernails here. And what you do is you just go underneath the skin area

  • where it's affected and if you can find the stinger is to flick it out, flick the stinger

  • out from the area that you were stung. And in that way, it will help you to stop the

  • area stung to get infected as well as to reduce the pain and the swelling from the bee sting

  • or the wasp sting.
