  • A baking soda paste? Sudafed? Ask the pharmacist, they often have good ideas.

  • Cold pack, Benydril (depending on what other meds you take) and topical Cortaid or whatever anti itch (make sure it is clean first) also Bactine helps sometimes. GL!

  • If you have tobacco that will also help. Wet it and make a paste. It helps draw the sting out.
