Description

You get bit by a snake, your first reaction is: try and suck the venom out? Catch the snake that bit you? Run around panicking that you just got bit? If you answered yes or any of these then you congratulations, you don't know how to treat a snake bite! But don't worry, we explain what the experts suggest you do. We also cover popular myths and misconceptions about peeing on a jellyfish sting and Lauren tells a tale about how a tiny bee sting almost lead to her needing surgery.
