When Bees Strike

beeWhen you are stung by a bee, carefully grasp the stinger and pull it out as fast as you can. Taking a credit card and brushing it off the skin works well too. The less venom that enters your body, the smaller and less painful the resulting welt will be.

Ice the area immediately for 10 minutes to reduce the swelling and relieve pain.

If it still hurts, try cutting an onion in half and applying the fleshy side to the sting.
