I strongly suggest that you consult a doctor for an examination. Most scorpion stings are not serious but can have a severe local effect with swelling and pain in the area of the sting. Secondary infection can occur and this will have to be treated with topical and oral antibiotics. Ice and heat compress can alleviate the pain.
