Ant Stings- children's Benadryl if he starts to have a reaction to it (swelling or difficulty breathing). less...1/2ml, 1/2ml is also recommended for scorpion stings.
It will make him sleepy. Otherwise, you can soak him in warm water with epsom salt to relieve minor itching.

Scorpion stings- less...1/2ml, 1/2ml of benadryl

poisonous snakebite - 1ml could be used if applicable


Cuts- anti-biotic ointment, (Neosporin, Watch out for pain relievers that have ingredents with "caine" in them they are toxic) then wrap with medical wrap, or bandage
