My favorite is probably not everyone else's, but I use a baking soda and water paste, making it a little on the runny side and leave on for 15-20 min. for the stinger to float out and then clean it up and use peroxide and a little calamine to help the itch.

My volunteer firefighter neighbor says, and i have used it several times, straight bleach on a cotton ball soon as you can. Apply to skin for a few minutes but not too long. pain is gone. Here in the country, farmers on their tractors carry bleach with them just for that purpose.

Same as happy momma. also, a Benadryl type spray over the counter, spray on the bite. There is a liquid squeeze bottle called 'After Bite" at the pharmacy that has soothing menthol.
