my kids were outside playing and i am constantly checking on them to make sure they are safe and behaving. we live in the country and are off the road a ways and they are usually on the playset or climbing a tree or riding a bike. but i went outside and did not see them so i started yelling for them. stepped down felt a stinging pain ( yeah i know wear shoes) but i as a kid always went outdoors without them. so i figured no big deal. stepped down feel really bad stnging pain lift up foot and see the yellow jacket flying away. made a paste like mom always did when i was a kid and got stung of baking soda and water. the stinger must still be in there as my toe is swollen and the top of my foot is red and hurts to the touch this happened around noon. i have to go to hospital for a test before surgery. i really do not want to go to the er over this anyone have any suggestions to get the stinger out.
