6. The Poison Ivy plant produces an oil that irritates the skin of most people. Touching this plant can cause a rash, possibly severe, with redness, blisters, swelling, itching, burning, fever, and headache. What can you do about it?
Wash all exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water. Wipe with rubbing alcohol. If the rash is mild, apply calamine lotion or other soothing skin lotion.
Seek medical help immediately, especially if a rash appears on the face or genitals.
Unless the plant is chewed or swallowed no first aid is necessary. If the plant is chewed or swallowed, wash affected area with soap and water.

Use for hypothermia to maintain body temperature because ninety percent of heat loss is through the head
Only used when there is severe injury to the forehead.

9. Why was this Scout's eyes covered?
Because the Scoutmaster wants him to be quiet. Covering the eyes makes a Scout calm.
His eyes were stinging and burning.
There is something in his eye and you cannot get it out, so both his eyes were covered with dry sterile gauze pads before taking him to the doctor.
Pads were wet with warm milk and applied to the eye lids so the dirt under the eyelids would dissolve.

10. This is the proper way to bandage what type of injury?
Always use this method to secure a broken leg.
The heel and foot is supported by a cravat which helps immobilize a fractured ankle.
This is a common shin splint.
Never use this method since it prevents blood from circulating in the foot.

This is how you immobilize a broken collarbone.
This is how you immobilize a severely twisted wrist.
The sling keeps your injured elbow from moving around during the trip to the doctors office.
This is how you immobilize a broken hand.


A well-trained scout is a ready scout. Being prepared for situations in which first aid training is required is a sign of a good boy scout. Whether in the wilderness outdoors or a large city, situations will come up where a first aid kit accompanied with thorough training may make the difference between life and death. Safety is a major training portion of the Boy Scouts and that includes recovery as well as prevention.
