    I have no insurance and will not let a bee sting cost me that much money unless it effects my lungs! Really, my husband and I work with natural herbs....lucky we have that knowledge!

    Aloe vera is great for sunburn. I have never tried it for beestings.

    Agree - an Epi-pen is a good idea. Have never heard of tobacco on a wound...I would not recommend that. Tea bags however, because of the tannic acid can serve in a pinch as a topical anticoagulant.

    I took Benadryl....love that stuff with allergy crap! However, I immediately took a homemade salve from medicineal plants that grow wild in our country yard. My husbands recipe! It is an heal all salve with a drawing agent in it as well.

    Yikes! I would not do that! Spitting in the dirt and applying dirt to a wound is worse than doing nothing at all! There are potentially pathogenic organisms in saliva as well as the dirt that can gain access to your body via the non-intact skin.

    Seriously, I have thought of getting a eip pin, just have not done it. My allergy is not severe, just swelling and usually lose my cookies....But I kept my cookies this time...think the salve and benedryl did the trick!

    I stepped on my bee, got my big toe! I am allergic, but I bet your daughter was just lucky enough to have a stinger dripping with honey. Maybe?
