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.
