Place ice pack directly on the affected area. This one is pretty obvious and does wonders to reduce the swelling.
Shortly after getting married, I had my worst incident with being stung a whole bunch. We tried lots of different methods and this one really did help ease the pain for me. Directions: add just enough water to the baking soda to make a paste that is thin enough to spread on the sting, but not so thick as to be clumpy and just fall off.
Apply honey to the affected area, but of course only after you've left the beeyard or you'll pick up a bunch more bees. ;-)
This one stings a bit, but eases the pain after a just a second.
And lastly, rinsing the sting with cool water and applying mud or dirt mixed with water also soothes the pain and reduces the swelling. Be sure to clean and wash it off when your done.
I hope this helps for anyone that is wanting to start beekeeping or
for anybody that gets around a grumpy hive of honeybees. :-)
Thanks for stopping by.
