    This is the best answer I think because you covered what to do for ordinary reactions as well as for allergic reactions. Thanks.

    Yup, a trip in a helicopter to the ER sizes up a stick by a wasp by an allergic person (like me)!: Hope you don't get any more of those stings. Season's nearly over now.

    So many really different ways to draw the sting out and here is yet another. Grampa was such a darling.

    I wonder if it did really help. Someone else replied with this tip too. I will ask a doctor because it sounds really interesting - a down to earth remedy

    The treatment sounds good. Thanks. What worries me is the 'scraping' part because if the sting is still sort of half out, it's best to 'pull' the sting out. That's what I heard. I suppose if the sting is inside the sting you would 'scrape'.

    I just learned that I am too and am waiting to get my epipen. Thanks so much for coming in here. I was hoping an allergic wasp sting person would.

    I'll ask my doctor about the honey remedy, sounds good. If you're allergic you certainly would need an injection, pretty quickly!

    Good granny! Oh those wonderful days of running around carefree in bare feet - not worrying about the bees.
