I called the Ped, and they said to make a paste with meat tenderizer/water, put it on the sting and give her infant tylenol. I did both, but I'm slightly allergic to stings (haven't been stung in years, but as a kid I would swell A LOT) I'm scared. Her hand is very swollen, but she seems to be otherwise fine. I guess the meat tenderizer worked and neutralized the pain. Has anyone went through this before? We have a serious wasp problem this year. I don't know where they are all coming from, but I'm afraid to open my windows now. Oh and I killed the bastard that stung her. Any advice, tips or things to look out for would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Moms.

I found this site with a bunch of different ways to attract and kill the wasps.

In order for her to have a true allergic reaction she has to have been stung before. So you don't have to be worried about that. This time she may form large amounts of IgE wasp antibody. Then if she is exposed again the antibody will attack the wasp allergen from the sting and she would have a reaction. If she isn't allergic, no allergic reaction would happen.
Sorry about your little girl. I hate wasps, too.
