At one time or another, a bee will sting you. Cathy Isom gives you some home remedies for bee stings. That is to come in this land of ours.
The basic thing to treat any sting is to make sure to remove the stinger as quickly as possible. In most cases, you can use the edge of a credit card or your fingernail to gently scratch where they bit you. Do not use a clamp to remove it, as in the process, you can squeeze more poison into your wound. By scraping it, you avoid touching the sack of the poison, which is often still attached with bee stings.
Some natural remedies for bee sting to try at home include:
- Honey. By applying honey to the sting, you can start healing, reduce pain and relieve itching.
- Baking soda can also be useful. Create a paste with water and apply it to the chopped area. It helps calm the discomfort. Leave the paste for at least 15 minutes at a time and reapply as necessary.
- Apple cider vinegar is also a bee pacifier. Pour some ACV into a bowl, then dip a brown paper bag into the ACV and use it as a compress.
- It is also believed that toothpaste is an incredible aid for bee stings. It is believed that toothpaste can neutralize the acidity in bee venom.
