Penny and iceMy little brother got stung by a wasp. He was crying and crying. The stinger wasnt there because a few seconds later, my dad got stung by the same bee. But it was my brother that seemed to be dramatic. I tried the baking soda thing for a while but as soon as I took it off, it started to hurt again. So i put a penny on the stung area. That helped but around it was a whole bunch of swelling.So I put cold water and three ice cubes in a baggy and wrappen it in a paper towel. I put it on the swolen parts and he stopped complaining and fell asleep. Give it a try. it worked really well. Then I put hand sanitizer on it when it started to itch. That meant it was healing. Soon enough he was better.

Wasp or bee stingSliced onion wrapped up made the swelling and redness go down, while I made baking soda/cold water paste, changed out onion after paste application for a sliced lemon with vinegar on it and wrapped it back up.

Clean and Clear Astringent - pinkEvery time I get a bee, wasp, etc. sting I rub clean and clear facial astringent on it. The pink stuff. It will dry your skin, but it also pulls the venom out and on most; depending on the severity of the sting the symptoms usually disappear within 12 hours. It works on a sting the same way it does on dirty pores and scratches that are beginning to redden. It sucks all the bad stuff out. It hasn't failed me yet.

ToothpickMy grandmother had always told me of quick cures for things let it be a headaches, hiccups, or many other things. One time she had told me about an instant pain relief for a bee sting which was to put a toothpick behind an ear left or right did not matter and that the pain would be gone as soon as you let go.
Well needless to say I did not believe her because the idea sounds crazy. But the day I received my first bee sting I had remembered what my grandmother had said and decided to try it. And to my surprise it had worked, the pain had miraculously disappeared. So I did not want this remedy to be lost forever so I am sharing it with all of you. Try it and it will work. You won't lose anything in trying.

TobaccoAs soon as you get stung take a cigarette break it in half and apply the tobacco directly to the sting. I have used this several times and it helps draw the poison out that the stinger starts to release. It should only take a minute or two.
