Our expert says:
The scorpion toxin consists of short chain proteins. Immerging the hand in petrol will most probably break the proteins down, hence blocking the action of the toxin. A cold compress can also be applied and opiats and paracetemol can be given for the pain. Amoniac products can also be applied, as this should also break the proteins down.
