  • Have her put her little foot in mud. I grew up on a ranch and that's what my mama did for us whenever we got stung. There are also sting relief sprays that you can get. Mud always worked best for me!!

  • ice it. also do you have any meat tenderizer in the house? I take plain meat tenderizer mix it with a little water(paste) and apply. takes the swelling down so much sometimes you can't tell where the sting was

  • If nothing else works you can use baking soda. My grandma always put that on my stings when I was a kid. I once stepped on a bee, it hurts like hell :(

  • its probably too late now, but usually when u get stung by a bee u can take half an onion and press it on the spot where u get stung. it will take the poison out and it will stop hurting after a while.

  • Mud is what I was going to say. And give her some Motrin or Tylenol......poor baby. I hate bees!
