Insect Stings - Herbal Home Remedies
When an insect stings, its stinger usually remains in the skin while the insect flies away. However, if the insect stays attached to its stinger in your skin, flick it off with your thumb and forefinger. Do not squeeze the insect-not that anyone would want to do that.
Remove the stinger, but do not use your fingers or tweezers. Those methods can pump more poison into the skin. Instead, gently and carefully scrape the stinger out with the tip of a sharp knife.
Kitchen Cupboard SoothersTo relieve the pain and keep down the swelling of a sting, apply anyone of the following for a half-hour, then alternate it with a half-hour of ice on the stung area...
CAUTION: Do not put any foreign substance (mud, tobacco, ammonia, etc.) on broken skin. It could cause an infection that is much worse than the sting!
Quickly mix 2 teaspoons of salt in some water and gargle. Keep gargling. The salt water will draw out the poison and, most important, it will stop the area from swelling.
