    How to Treat a Caterpillar Sting


    Instructions


      • 1 Utilize some masking tape or other adhesive tape to lift any embedded hairs or bristles from the caterpillar before washing. Just apply the tape over the area, and when you remove the tape, you will remove the hairs.
      • 2 Wash the affected area very well with regular soap and water. This will help to eliminate any remaining venom from the caterpillar.


      • 3 Ice the area down well, as this will aid with swelling and pain. If the swelling persists, then contact a physician immediately as this could be a serious allergic reaction.
      • 4 Take some over the counter allergy medicine to help with the allergic reactions. Anything that you might take for a bee sting will usually work well with a caterpillar sting. Technically, a caterpillar does not sting as it does not have a stinger. It actually delivers venom through the hairs and spines on its body.
      • 5 Resist the urge to itch the affected area as this will further irritate the reaction. If you can not keep from itching, then ask your doctor about solutions via a prescription. There are a number of products that can help with the itching.

    Tips & Warnings


    • Do handle caterpillars with gloves only.
    • Do wash the area right away.
    • Do use ice to relieve swelling.
    • Do not wait for the swelling to begin before icing.
    • Do not try to remove a caterpillar with your bare hands.
    • Do not ignore severe reactions to caterpillars as they can be serious.
