I told her not to go outside without her shoes on, and she didn't listen. She stepped on one of those nasty stinging caterpillars. I put cortisone 10 on it, but she claims that isn't helping. It's red and slightly swollen.
I have her laying beside me. She's never been stung by anything so I want to keep and eye on her for allergic reaction.
Anyways, any suggestions on what to do to relieve the pain?

I have never heard of a stinging caterpillar here in NY! Maybe Google it? Do you have Lanacane first aid spray? Call your local Pharmacist & ask them what to use.
