After an injection, refrain from rubbing. Indeed, the venom is contained in small vesicles that are broken by rubbing, which accentuates the pain.
Better to rinse, or soak the affected limb in warm salt water, because the heat destroys the venom.
Then put sand on the wound and let it dry. Then scrape gently to remove stinging cells and disinfect with an antiseptic. Finally, apply a soothing cream for two to three days.
