Katsy, we live in an acreage with our own 'green' sewer and rain water systems.  So, no bleach or chemicals allowed to enter this property,   except for fuel for one of the cars (the other one hybrid) and ride on mower (yes we do have a grass patch we want to keep low and property not big enough for cows or sheep breeding, I guess we are guilty of using the best that green and not so green worlds can offer).  Thanks for your suggestion, vinegar is acid too, may be a better alternative?

OK, can breathe now!!  They have just finished, the bees are happier with their empty frames, now they can concentrate on what they love to do, collect pollen and bring it to the hive to make honey for themselves and us.  Nearly 30Kg of honey in 9 frames, we love the stuff (although I am on a honeyless period for the time being).  It will sit in a corner for a few days, wait for any wax to come to the top, scoop it up and make wax blocks.  Got to start candle and soap making with the wax.  I may start another thread to see what people does with it.

No more stings, we will relax now with a cup of coffee (I wonder if OK with the meds he is having?) and barley, soy flour and rice flour mixture pancakes (mix prepared earlier this morning) with mapple syrup for me and honey for the rest.     Wish all you helpful people were here to join us!!

Probably coffee is good, he needs adrenalin to fight it off, the meds may make him drousy if anything (though some people / kids they make hyper! including mine  ).  Antihistamine may kill his appetite for food, and lower his stomach acid, so coffee may help.

Meant to say last night to keep the head elevated, but that happens naturally on a pillow anyway!

The pancakes sound great.  Have fun with your friend!  The melons must have been   they didn't get a feel.

Cristina, that would be baking soda;  not baking powder.

I was stung in the wrist in September.  The local swelling lasted for about one week.  But it started to dwindle after about three days.  (I obstinately decided to not treat it.)


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

on the lip  
I met bees too closely as a child but the worst was on my ear !

My grand father put earwax on the inflamation from time to time and it was gone within 2 days...
With my goats, I learnt that any "bite" (insect or snake) can be healed with vitamine C (best is ascorbic acid), oral and local.
My goats were attacked by wasps this summer ; I gave vit C, and homeo : Histaminum 9ch and apis mellifica 9ch ; 6 hours later, nothing to see anymore.

A picture for YOUR collection of ... howlers ?!

Have a fine evening

And here we were at the hospital, little Analiah with her injured hand being checked into, while dear hubby sat with his fat lip in the waiting room looking after our bags.  He is OK, I am glad I am keeping an eye on him though, when we came back from the hospital (re-last post on DD and DGD's accident), he was going to have another one of those pills, he already had one in the morning, meant to have them at night!!  No wonder he was falling asleep at the hospital.  He will be OK though, maybe a bit dazzled, if the lip goes down enough, I would like him to stop having those drawsey things.  Maybe the fact that we did not get a chance to have that cup of coffee earlier, may have something to do with it making him sleepy.  And I still got to have my supps for the day!! I'll do it now, do not want to undo the good job Swami is doing for me.

highest amounts of calcium and vitamin C are the antidots against picures of insects...= natural antihistaminica.....dito the aminoacid l'methionine seems to be fine for such issues ....

No -- when I wrote my original response, I couldn't remember if bleach was an acid or a base -- I just remembered that it was the opposite of whatever the bee sting was.   Now I've looked it up, and found that it is a base, so adding vinegar won't work! So, if you can find some sort of strong base other than bleach, you can try that.

I hope things are continuing to improve?? I gotta admit I have two slightly "bemusing" pictures of you guys...the sorry pic of the two injured ones at hospital - hope the "fat lip" and the injured hand didn't look too much like they may have been connected? Just as well it wasn't the other way round, with a black eye thrown in for good measure
And you Cristina "chasing" baking soda at the supermarket??!! I am imagining the packets with legs & possibly wings, flying around...
All the best for today!!! How did you cope with visitors as well as all this??!!

I wonder if 'stinging' nettles would help!  

I'm glad to hear he is better. That is really scary.

, this sort of daily injection of turning predicaments into healthy laughs helps.  And I thank you for helping keep dosage up for us.  

Well, I am discussing the living with a different blood type visitor, probably under my Swami thread.  Different topic to this one that has been moved somewhere else...  C U there.

Well, it looks like I will not need to do any chasing!!  Your baking soda, is our Bi-carb soda!!  

Two things from this:  First, I am glad I do have these items readily available in my pantry, always naturally stocking on it because, that is what I use for green cleaning at home.

Second: you guessed it, this info will go to the Research thread and Summary thread to make it easier for future reference.  Remind me to do it if I forget, or go ahead and post it there yourselves.  A bit busy now thinking what to feed my O guest ...

Here is the link on the baking/bi-carb soda nomenclature:

You couldn't dream all that up could you?  What a story.  Glad his lip went down, so he can give you lip again (must have been hard to talk).   you're still researching for the food thread through all this  

Surprised you couldn't get coffee easily at the hospital since the health department recently told the overworked hospital staff to take caffeine to manage their workload.     Couldn't believe that.

I've got a little container to take my supplements with me on outings.  People look at you funny sometimes and probably wonder if they shook you would you rattle   but that's their problem.
