Quoted from Ribbit
homeopathy.  "That silly magic water" he calls it.  But it works.

Oh, Yes...  It works really well - for many different problems.  Just need to get the right stuff, in the right strength, for the problem...

One caution:  Taking a homeopathic remedy when not needed may cause the "illness" that it is made to help.

When I was a girl, my mother would lay a regular white aspirin tablet on our stings and soften it with a drop of water.  It would lay on the sting like a paste and I remember it lessening the pain and swelling very quickly.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Well, obviously the moment has passed to post this in time for Narnia's hub (but maybe I made up for that with my China Cola suggestion for him in another thread today ), but now that I see this thread, I want to add:

When I was a child, I was stung by a bee and crying on our front stoop.  The next-door-neighbor, a gentleman from India (I think he was some sort of diplomat--I grew up in the DC burbs) came running over and put some plain yogurt on the sting.  It almost instantaneously eased the sting and I believe it just calmed and cooled the whole area, and possibly simultaneously somehow either drew out the poison or the probiotics in the yogurt neutralized it...or something, but it helped.  So, next time (which hopefully will never happen, but if it does, or if someone else with a fresh bee sting pulls up this thread), if you have any plain yogurt on hand, put some on the sting.  It helps!

Hopefully this is late and he's already feeling better, but Bach rescue remedy really helped my son when he got stung by a bald faced hornet on the lip.  The redness and swelling went down visibly!  I keep it on hand all the time now.

I woke up with a spider bite on my leg and it itched a lot so I thought to try the penny taped to it and within a few minutes the crazy itching stopped! I left it on all day hoping it would make the angry red blotch go away...we'll see.

Place a syringe (NOT the needle, syringes come w/o needles) over the sting and suck out the poison. The pain stops instantly and the poison no longer does any damage.

Adolph's Meat Tenderizer works pretty good on inflammed bites (topically of course). It is just two enzymes, papain and bromelain. They can digest the foreign protein that is causing the reaction.

I was certainly thankful for this thread earlier today when I was stung by a wasp. I immediately checked this thread and then put a paste of baking soda on the sting. I have kept ice on it most of the rest of the afternoon and this evening and it barely hurts at all any more! Thanks to all who gave suggestions.
