Works for me Wednesday: Bee Sting Survival 101

We were at the park at grandmas and Charley got a bee/ wasp sting. He cried. It. hurts.

On our walk home from the park Grandma Charlie dug back into her bee sting survival tip files and thought she remembered something about using mustard to help a bee sting. When we got home she decided to look online to make sure it was mustard...because that didn't seem quite right.


Charley hesitated when we told him that soy sauce could help the bee sting. So Grandma put a little soy sauce on the band aid and then stuck that on the little bulls eye sting mark.

SERIOUSLY, within 2 hours the bulls eye was gone and the swelling was gone. His arm looked like nothing had happened to it.

SOY SAUCE! I know I will be grabbing up some small to go packets next time the opportunity arises to stick in my first aid kit.

This post is linked to We are THAT family's Works for me Wednesday.

Thanks for the tip! Both boys got stung yesterday afternoon! I'll put some packets in my park survival kit. I also like to keep the Benadryl prefilled spoons with us for stings too. You never know when they are going to have an allergic reaction!

Oooh! Tommy & Polly (Sacha's dog) both got stung on the eyebrow last week. Good tip!

So cool! Who knew!?!

Sorry to hear Charley was stung! Not fun! I also heard that WD40 works?

Enjoy the rest of your time!

Wow. Who sauce? I remember as a kid putting on baking soda.

Thanks for the tip. I will have to add some packets in our first aid kits too.

I use a bakingsoda/water paste and it draws out the venum.

great tip! holding a penny on the sting wokrs like a charm too - in case there aren't any take out places close by :)

I got stung by a wasp not too long ago and it was SO PAINFUL. My almost eleven year-old hopped on the internet for home remedies while I wailed about; it turned out that TOOTHPASTE works like charm! Just rubbed it on and...'ah!' Like it never happened. Note that we used toothPASTE, not the gel. I don't know if the gel kind works well or not. I started a 'home remedies' notepad to put with our first aid stuff. We are active with Cub Scouts and camp frequently, so you never know...and who can have all of the 'medical' stuff for every type of ailment? There's a lot to be learned on this internet thing. But remember toothpaste if you are out of soy sauce! You'll smell nice and minty fresh!
