Hello there. I can understand your concern. Scorpion sting is not a insect bite. Its a bit of a tricky matter. Scorpion sting has a risk of causing myocarditis but not all scorpions are capable of it. As its been 2 days and you are alright, you need not worry but usually at higher centres, the patient is kept under observation for 12 hours or 24hours. You need not worry now. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
