Wasp Sting Remedies Not Working?


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 104 Posts

I was stung by a yellow jacket 2 days ago and have tried all the home treatments I know of. I got the stinger out, applied ice, baking soda, vinegar, antihistamine, OTC itch cream. Nothing is working. The itch is horrible and there is a good deal of swelling and redness. I'm OK otherwise, no typical allergic reaction like trouble breathing or nausea. It doesn't look infected. Does anyone know how long this will last? Or anything else I can try?

Go to a health food store or one online and get the Homeopathic remedy Apis Mel (6x would be fine) and take one or two pillules every hour or two till you find relief. Should not take more than two or three doses. I keep this on hand all the time since I have an allergy to bee stings. It will work with any bite or sting. Hope you feel better real soon.

To littlegamma,
Thanks for your suggestion. What's in the stuff? I don't take anything unless I know what it is and where it came from. Is there a description somewhere online?

This sounds weird, but when I have an itch from poison oak or a bug bite or sting, I blow a hot blow dryer on it from about a foot away for about 20-30 seconds, or as long as you can stand it. It will itch like crazy while you are doing this, but as soon as you stop, the itch is gone. With poison oak, the itch is gone for 4 hours, but I have to do it more often with the yellow jacket bites I'm dealing with right now. I will use Benadryl tonight, so I can sleep!
