A great product that we had to buy in Skukuza shop, AFTER being attacked by a crazed,ruthless, very,very aggressive bee, is called ANTIZANE.

It is a antihistimine cream that works wonders for bee-stings and other gogga bites :wink:

carrying antistimine is actually a necessity, you never know what you may have an allergic reaction to, especially where spider bites are concerned and a topical cream works exceptionally well for this....ok ja I say this cos everything that moves bites me and I'm allergic :redface: :roll: :lol:

Gee. I take my whole first aid kit on holiday with me, where ever I go actually, (Even Work!).

Besides anthisan cream, i also take with me Allergix antihistamine tablets, extremely cheap at a chemist. I have them in my pocket or handbag, that if something bites me i don't have to b a idiot and R....U....N... back to the car and get stuff. Pop 1 or two tablets and carry on having lunch. But beware, it can cause the urge to catch some Zzz :!: .

:lol: I had just built up my personal F.A kit for holidays and F.A duties. we were on holiday at letaba just after my dad died. Everything was cool, the braai was lekker, the whole family was enjoying the whole 'event' until i back stepped on to the gas light. :clap: :naughty:

Big Ouch! 2nd degree burn to on the back of my right arm. I don't want the burn shield dressing (I hate them) so i found some burn cream and just kept the burn moist and it healed quite nicely mind you. Just have a little scar.

My dad had a few pointers:

My father always believed in having at least two (ironed) handkerchiefs in ones pocket and a 'checkers' shopping packet. The Handkerchiefs: One for your personal use (With whatever :D ) and the other you can use in emergencies. Because it is ironed, the 'inside' of one is pretty sterile, so if you have cut yourself or something to that effect, you have a dressing.

The 'Checkers' shopping packet is another story. Dad had one in his pocket, normally to hold his lunch whilst at work, and can use at a glove too. but anyway back to the story...

We went on holiday to the Kruger with friends who had bought a brand new car. And the mother was very watchful about this car. no dirty shoes, food etc.... Now unfortunately for us ladys, nature calls to us once a month and unfortunately it was the daughters turn, unprepared. So dad saved the day with is plastic bag on the car seat until we got to the nearest camp.

So I'm always prepared... i think...
Check out this month's Go! Mag, there is stuff on first aid and improvisation.

Allergex for sneezes
Phenergan for rashes and allergic bites.

Don't take Phenergan if you need to drive.
I also take Gentian Violet for septic sores. Sand fleas can leave septic bites.
Lip-ice
Tweezers

Been a long time since I posted here. But on the subject of allergy tablets...

Brian and I got married last year and on honeymoon at letaba, to me, disaster struck. Now Brian is allergic to bee stings, so yes, I was prepared, just in case...

But low and behold, at the restaurant, sitting quietly watching game, Mr. Bee decided to visit us. Brian nor I saw him... And he decided that my boots were interesting & then decided to walk up my leg and sting me! ON HONEYMOON! And a first tym for me!

But my newly wedded husband came to the rescue and took care of everything, since he has been stung before... Now I am very careful of bees!
