Removing a Bee Stinger

When being stung by a bee it is very painful but you can significantly minimize your pain and suffering if you keep your wits about you. While the initial sting is painful, if you get the stinger out your pain will be gone. There is a trick to it though. You have to remove the stinger in a way that doesn't put more poison into your skin subsequently causing yourself more pain.

It is very simple and effective. You simply take a credit card and brush the stinger out in the direction it entered your skin. The pain will be gone instantly and you will be the world better. This is very useful with children.

I have included an article on this and a video for you to see how it works but it is very simple effective treatment for bee stings.

Removing Bee Stingers

In Conclusion

You can limit the pain you endure when suffering a bee sting by simply keeping your wits about you. Once stung simply sweep the stinger out of your body in the direction it entered your body and the pain stops. Do not pinch the stinger with a pair of tweezers as it only increases the poison that enters your body. It is the simple scrapping motion that removes the stinger and ends the pain almost instantaneously.

      Hi ladyjojo,

      It is always wonderful to hear from you. Stay away from hives but if you are stung you now know how to remove the stinger keeping the majority of posion out of your body.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and rating.

      Hi Rob Winters,

      That would be oral benadryl.

      All My Best,

      Hi dallas93444,

      You question is an excellent one. You will need someone there to help you in the event you are stung in a place you can't readily access. This happened to my Dad when he was stung in the spine. And he couldn't control the impulse to try and get it out as it hurt really badly. I told him to hold still and then I flicked the stinger out of his spine and he was immediately out of pain. But it is really hard for the person in pain to resist pulling it out when they are in pain. The problem is when you pull the stinger out you get a much bigger dose of the posion that hurts you to begin with and it takes your body a much longer time to recover. The big picture is take the stinger out correctly and you will suffer less.

      I live in a community where we are required to volunteer before we grow up. I believe in volunteering. Some of my best skills I have learned through volunteering. I volunteered as an EMT. It was a long time ago.

      But dallas93444, I can't tell you how much impulses must be resisted with bee stings and knife wounds. When a person is stabbed the worst thing they can do is pull the knife out as they can bleed to death but it is what their instincts tell them to do.

      Resist your impulses and recover well.

      Always great reading your comments. I appreciated them. As I appreciate you reading my articles, commenting and providing feedback. When I am off my challenge I will be back to read your work as well.

      What happens when you cannot acces the bee sting area with a credit card? I was riding a motorcycle and I felt like a rock had drilled a hole into the bottom of my neck. When I pulled over and examined the 'blazing" area, I noted a small bee stinger in the middle of a red "angry" area... At this point, it could not hurt any worse, I pulled out with my fingers... A corner of a credit card may have work... I was too motivated to remove... Did not consider a credit card! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Rob Winters,

      For bee stings use the credit card and scrap the stinger out but as a parent you should always have benadryl on hnd in case of emergency reactions.

      Hi Ardie,

      Would that be the Cleveland Zoo? If you removed the stinger immediately you will be over a bee sting in a matter of minutes. Just make certain you scrap it out and don't squeeze the stinger so more posion gets into your skin.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Hi Just Ask Susan,

      It is that simple. It is hard to remember once you are stung.

      I am always glad to share.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Where was your hub a month ago when I needed it?? I got stung at the zoo on my little finger and refused to let anyone get the stinger out because it hurt worse when they messed with it. It stopped hurting after a week but it could still be in there :D I will be bookmarking this page - great info!
