Home Remedies for bee stings and insect bites

Bug bites are often painful, terribly itchy, and can swell up to quite large. A bee or wasp sting is painful and the sooner you remove the stinger and treat the wound, the better and faster there will be relief and less swelling.Apply Apis Mallifica 30x to reduce inflammation, pain, burning and stinging. -Cover with a band aid.

Baking powder paste can help pull some of the poison out of the sting. It's not the only thing that can. The only use for tobacco I've ever had was as an emergency pulling agent. Damp tobacco placed over the sting may also pull some of the venom out.

Make a paste of baking soda and water - use a poultice of baking soda to neutralize the acid of the bee venom. Leave it on for 15 - 20 minutes

Applying Toothpaste-one unique and very interesting home remedy for bee sting is using toothpaste. Any kind of dental cream can be used here-you don't need to bother about their chemical formulas or the brands.

Wash the sting site with soap and water and treat with antibiotic ointment.Get away from the area where you were stung as bee stings liberate pheromones that cause other bees that are close by to attack.

If more serious reactions occur such as vomiting, dizziness or difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical care. You should also seek immediate treatment if there are ten or more stings. Or, if the sting is located in the nose or mouth as swelling may inhibit breathing.
