    • Tomcat StingsProf DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K) 1
    • IntroductionThe term Tomcat sting is actually incorrect.Tomcat does not sting or bite. Tomcat bodytouches on the human body is enough tomake toxic effects. Tomcat includes strains ofbeetle family of insects. Or more preciselybeetle also called Ants “Semai”.2Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • This beetle has a size less than 1 cm. Yellowbody, dark in the head, and tail. Middle of theabdomen is dark green has pair of hard wings.Typically, the region appears crawling around,hiding the wing and look more like ants.3Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)

    • If disturbed, it will increase the portion of thestomach looks like a scorpion beetle to scarethe enemy. There is fluid in Tomcat’s body that12 times more powerful than cobra venomthough. Haemolymph fluids or toxins referredto as "aederin".5Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • How to cope Tomcat’s venomTomcat will automatically release toxic fluid when incontact or collide with human skin. Tomcat willalso discharge the toxin on items such asclothing, towels, or other objects. Thats why, ifexposed bed linens, towels and equipmentpoisoned tomcat should be allegedly washed. If ithas been exposed to Tomcat toxins, for first aidimmediately wash / rinse with clean water andsoap.6Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • If it comes in contact with Tomcat:1. Immediately wash the affected area with soap and water.2. Severe skin reaction to get better medical care.3. Make sure the insects are no longer in bed and close all the windowswhen the evening.4. Materials such as antiseptic solution of potassium permanganate(KMnO4) can be used for washing.5. Antiseptic mixed with a low strength steroid cream can reduceinjuries. If it appears as a speck of red spots, rub the ointment onthe skin immediately with Hydrocortisone 1% / betametasone withneomycin sulfate 3 times a day.6. Do not let the wounds were still wet in the sun, because it can causeblack scars is hard to be removed.7Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • Tomcat always appear in the lightAll insects have a role in disease transmission, includingTomcat. This insect has toxins that can cause skinreactions. These insects are found in gardens or fieldsand usually only causes a reaction in the skin. Incontrast to other insects such as centipedes, toxins cancause paralysis due to strike a nerve, if exposed toinsect venom is then immediately cleaned and givenanti-allergy medications such as hydrocortisoneointment or betamethasone so the reaction is notexcessive. Bodys reaction to Tomcat poison insomeone is different between each other, there is nolight weight.8Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)Tomcat often arise when the day before thenight, at the time people turn on the lights.
    • Tomcat has a Latin name of Paederusriparius, Named Tomcat as a cursory look at theinsects impression pictured as the USA Tomcatfighter. These insects live in humid areas andgenerally will follow the light of the lamp, eatinganimals such as fleas and beetles pests of rice.Tomcat will remove toxins from the body or incontact with human skin. This poison will causeitching and also cause thermal injury to the skin.9Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • Haemolymph fluid in the body (except the wings)these animals have the potential harmful toxins.The toxin is referred to as aederin: (C24 H43 O9N) was identified in 1953.10Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • Tomcat will automatically release the liquid in theevent of a collision with a touch of human skin.Can be touched indirectly throughtowels, clothing or other equipmentcontaminated by tomcat poisonous. Thats why, ifhit by automatic dermatitis such as sheets, towelsand equipment exposed to toxic tomcat shouldallegedly be washed.11Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • Tomcat is actually useful to repel pests, leafhoppers are preyTomcat. Tomcat not actually hostile to humans. So, maybethere is human activity that interferes with Tomcat. In thecities of Jakarta and Surabaya, Tomcat insects usually live inareas that have trees or plants such as city parks. Tomcat flywith the body "standing", not slumping. The wings do notcover the entire body, unlike other insects. A Tomcataffected skin area will usually experience itching. Whensevere, the skin may blister. Not expected to face Tomcatattacks panic as poison is not deadly. Skin that has been"bitten" can be washed with soapy water for first aidantiseptic.12Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • Characteristics of the Tomcat affected skin is veryindividual, can be mild to severe:1. Appear reddish color of the skin2. The skin will feel itchy3. Irritation or inflammation of the skin4. Will appear blistered skin due to irritation5. If severe, then there will be pus in the skin13Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)

    • Prevention of Tomcat’senvenomizationPesticide for Tomcat is a vegetable extract thattypically contains galangal, lemongrass and neemleaves in order to kill tomcat. Other things can bedone as a form of prevention is through peoplesbehavior for example by closing the doors andwindows before turning on the lights, becausetomcat follows the light.Tomcat usually appear to crawl and hide the wingsand look more like ants. If disturbed it will improvethe look of the stomach like a scorpion.17Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
    • 1. Avoid direct contact.Direct contact with Tomcat is tantamount to attach the skin to toxins.Usually skin will feel the heat followed by the appearance of itchyspots, watery and black marks on the skin. If you want to get rid ofthe animal, use paper or other batsman, not by hand.3. Put mosquito nets and also close the windows and doors beforeturning on the lights to prevent the entry of beetles.5. Make sure the home environment clean4. Annihilate the untreated plants and ensure cleanliness of the park sothat animals will not be nested. Prevention is better than cure somake sure the house is clean and comfortable so do not bedistracted from Tomcat problem. Although insects are useful tofarmers, we also must remain vigilant.18Prof DR Dr Ariyanto Harsono SpA(K)
