Never again are you going to have to fear getting stung by a bee with these all-natural remedies
There’s nothing quite like summertime, running around the beach or in a backyard in as few clothes as humanly possible – soaking in all of the rays of sun and enjoying the festivities that the warm weather and cool breezes bring to the table.
At the exact same time, there are a number of little insects that are going to try and dampen your “buzz” – especially bees that have a nasty little tendency of striking us when we are wearing of the least layers of protection, and minding our own business!
For some people, getting stung by a bee is little more than an annoyance – but for others it can be one of the more painful experiences they need to go through in life, while others still may find themselves contending with a real deal life or death situation.
Obviously, if you fall into that last camp of people, you’re going to need to make sure that you have an immediate medical intervention on hand and that you get yourself to emergency medical care just as soon as humanly possible – ignoring and avoiding all of the all-natural remedies outlined below in favor of taking full advantage of all that modern medicine and science has created. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to risk your life or long term health impacts by not seeking out that medical attention, no matter how effective and proven the all-natural solutions below are.
But for others, you’re going to find a tremendous amount of help and assistance in the form of each and every one of these all-natural remedies outlined below – to the point where you aren’t too terribly concerned about dealing with the sting from a bee (though you’ll likely never get to the point where it doesn’t bother you at all).
How to know if you have been stung by a bee in the first place
Though it may be difficult to imagine, the truth of the matter is that there are literally millions and millions of instances each and every single year where people are stung by a bee and have absolutely no idea anything has happened until a number of other symptoms present themselves. Some of these tiny little insects have ridiculously small stingers attached of themselves, and you’ll never know that you have been “attacked” until you are face-to-face with much more serious – and sometimes life-threatening – conditions.
A lot of this has to do with when and where you were stung, not only where on your person but also where you were and what you were up to a when the stinging occurred. Sometimes we find ourselves in the heat of the moment, really enjoying all that the warm weather has to offer – to the point where things like bee stings don’t even register on our radar.
However, if you are dealing with any of these symptoms, it’s critical that you leverage the all-natural solutions below or get the medical attention described above.
• Moderate to severe itching, scratching, and tingling sensations at the site of the sting
• Any swelling whatsoever, and elevated piece of skin that is read or sore, or a general puffiness that had existed before
• And overwhelming sensation of burning or freezing at the site of the stinging
• A very serious fever, fatigue, dizziness, or nausea that is quick setting
These are nowhere near all of the symptoms that you may be dealing with, but they are certainly some of the more common and serious of the bunch – and will require immediate treatment to alleviate.
Here are just a handful of remedies that you should look into when you are looking to eliminate stinging sensations
The first treatment then you’re going to want to leverage is a concoction of baking soda and cold water, to the point where it is a liquid or a paste – depending upon how large the bee sting area is. Liquids are better for a larger areas that need to be treated all at the same time, whereas a paste is going to be better for a smaller region that you can treat with a higher concentrated dosage.
If you have ammonia on hand (though it isn’t all-natural), you may also be able to use it in its raw form to eliminate much of the pain a stinging can create – though you need to be careful about using too much ammonia or mixing it with other solutions.
Apple cider vinegar is another solution that you can immediately apply to a sting area, a solution that will all but eliminate all the sensation of pain and in instant – while at the same time reducing much of the inflammation, swelling, or puffiness that may have occurred. You’re going to only want to use a few drops at a time, as too much at once can create a stinging sensation as well that is uncomfortable.
