Title : Medicinal plants used in scorpion bite treatment in North Africa


Extracts from plants have been used among traditional healers, especially in Africa, where there are plentiful sources, as therapy for scorpion bites for a long time. Several medicinal plants, which appear in old drug recipes or have been passed on by oral tradition, are believed to be scorpion bite antidotes. Considering the socio-medical problem due to the scorpion sting, this review brings together scientific papers indicating the effectiveness of medicinal plants for the treatment of scorpion stings, providing information to researchers for a better future.
