Put a penny on it!

My daughter and I were out for a walk and she got stung by a yellow jacket. I had heard that putting a copper penny on a sting takes the pain away. We did not have one on us at the time, so we hurried back to the house and put one on it right away. In less than a minute she quit crying and said that it didn't hurt anymore. I wish I would get stung just so I could try this.=) I know of others who have tried this, and it worked for them.

Bee Sting Remedy

Take the stinger out first. Quickly apply meat tenderizer. Works! (I am sitting here now with a bee sting to the foot, OUCH!).

Dabbed on some garlic juice just a little then put the baking soda paste (b.soda mixed w/water to peanut butter consistancy) and dabbed that on with a band-aid over top, was ok within 10 min... stinger is still in because he stepped on it and we can't find it but this remedy worked. Thumbs up

Hope!

After stung, clutch the affected area with your face contorted in agony. Afterwards, sit in a chair, sulking, and concentrate only on the dull, throbbing pain emanating from the welt. Then, after a few minutes to a few hours, go eat some pineapple pizza and go back to sulking. Repeat as necessary.

Baking soda works

Mix some water and baking soda and rub it on your bee sting. It might take a while but don't wash it off. It will come of eventually, it takes away the pain for good.

Pee

First if stinger is stuck in your body remove it then discreetly pee on it or place pee in cup and pour a little on it sounds weird but it works the best, also works on jelly fish stings.

Crushed Asprin

As soon as possible after the sting. Crush an aspirin and mix it into a thick paste with water. Most of the pain goes away in a 2-3 minutes and is almost unnoticeable in around 20 to 30 minutes.
If seeking purely natural form you can get asprin out of the inner bark of willow tree twigs.

Toothpaste

Glycerin dries out the venom, while other ingredients in the paste equalize the stingy itchy feelings.
Doctors reccomend Crest. :)

Onion for Stings

After the person is stung-asap place onion directly on the sting site-gently squeezing the onion to release the juice. Works great for any bite or sting!Tried it on my son yesterday-within one hour all pain and swelling was gone.

Garlic and Baking Soda Bee Sting

I stole this remedy from other people on this site. Last year I was in agony for weeks because I stepped on a bee in my yard.Today I looked up what to do on this site as soon as I stepped on the bee. I crushed garlic and baking soda together. The results were great!
