PostSubject: Stinger   Thu 01 Jul 2010, 5:18 pm

Something bit me two days ago and I think the stinger is still inside as it hurts like hell. Does anybody know what I can do to get it out any poultice tips I've tried the tweezers and have been putting lots of hydrogen peroxide on it but I can't see the stinger to dig it out. Anybody? Is there a nurse in the house?

My Mother would say to put mud on it and let it harden. It should help pull the stinger out.

I was thinking of using one of those biore patches when it dries it might pull it out???

I'm not sure if it is out or not last time this happened it just didn't heal so I'll have to wait a few more days.

Instant
Herbal Remedy for Bug Bites and Stings






In the spring and summer your kids – and you too- are more likely to
be running around outside barefoot or rolling and playing in the grass.
Getting a bug bite or sting can put an end to these happy times. This
bug bite and sting herbal remedy never fails to work and to get the kids
quickly ready for more outdoor adventures.



To
squelch a bug bite or sting:


Quickly find a broad leaf plantain leaf - easily found as they are in
almost all grassy areas. It is low growing, dark green and broad, with
“ribs” on the leaf – please look it up in a plant identification book if
you are not sure.


Chew up the
leaf – the action of salvia activates its sting stopping powers. (If you
are afraid to chew it up then bite on it and mix it with some of your
salvia.)

Place the chewed up plantain leaf on the bug bite or sting. Almost
immediately the stinging will stop. You or your child can hold the
plantain mass in place while you go inside and get the rest of the
remedy.



Find your comfrey tincture (you do have a good herbal
first aid kit, right?), a big Band-Aid (my kids preferred using a gauze
pad and first aid tape - so much more dramatic).

Leaving the plantain mass in place, secure it with the Band-Aid or gauze
and first aid tape. Once secured, dribble some comfrey tincture under
the dressing and on the sting. The comfrey is soothing and cool and
takes away any lingering pain, stinging or discomfort.

Leave on until it falls off later that day or the next morning. If it is
a particularly bad bite or sting, you may need to put a fresh
plantain/comfrey dressing on the next day.



This remedy has never failed and prevents infections from
the bite or sting. The best thing is how much it seems to empower the
children (and adults too!). If someone around them gets a bug bite or
sting the kids are the first ones to find the plantain (so be sure you
teach them to be able to accurately identify it) and they show up
beaming and full of compassion – “Don’t worry. It’s OK --we have the
plantain!”


I have used this before but instead of chewing it My mom simmered it in milk and applied it warm to infected area. Good luck!!

Sounds like a plan thanks, but the main thing with stingers is to get them out. I finally had to dig mine out with very sharp tweezers, not fun, it is much better now. Smile
