THOSE NASTY INSECT BITES AND BEE STINGS AND WHAT TO DO FOR THEM.
Oh the Itch! Oh the Pain! What's the best remedy for you?
Sometimes it seems that no matter what you try, the itch just will not stop. I
know how you feel. Myself and my family are right there with you. My girls are
especially susceptible to the continuing nasty itch of mosquito bites. In an effort to
find some new remedies, since the old ones were not working, I came across loads
and loads of information for dealing with those nasty insect bites and bee stings and thought I would share some
THE FUNNIEST ONES I FOUND (to me):
Apply some nail polish on the bite.
Apply some toothpaste to the bite.
Rub a bar of soap over the itchy bite.
Place a piece of scotch tape on the bite.
Tums tablet. Crush one and add a few drops of water to make a paste and apply to the bite.
Banana peel. Rub the inside of the peel on the bite.
Cover the bee sting with mustard.
Cover the bee sting with honey.
Now all of this may work, for some people anyway, others maybe not, however, they just struck me as funny.
THE BEST ONES I FOUND (or that seem more realistic to me):
FOR THE ITCH:
Vinegar applied directly to the itchy area or take a hot bath with 2 cups of vinegar in the water.
Benadryl cream or cortisone cream.
Take a bath with baking soda added to the bath.
FOR THE STING:
Make a paste of baking soda and water.
Make a paste of meat tenderizer and water.
Dab a generous amount of toothpaste on the sting spot and leave it on.
Soak the sting spot in a mixture of Epsom salt and water.
Apply Aloe Vera.
Crush fresh parsley and apply.
Drizzle apple cider vinegar over the wound.
Apply a slice of fresh papaya.
Whatever remedy you choose to deal with those nasty insect bites and bee stings I hope you find one that works
for you consistently and I really hope that you do not need to use one of them very often.
AS ALWAYS PLEASE REMEMBER SAFETY FIRST! If at anytime you feel like you are having trouble breathing or that you develop the hives SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY! Other symptoms that require immediate attention could include:
Tongue begins to swell.
The stung area begins to swell to an alarmingly large size.
