 Baking soda paste.

Put a facial mask on the sting. It will help pull any stinger out and it also pulls out the poison that causes the sting!!

 Mix baking soda with a little water. Get it pasty and dab it on there. It will pull the sting out. Make sure the stinger is still not in there first.

Crush up some garlic and put it on the sting.
Give her a treat and let her watch a movie on your lap and she will be ok :)

I am not Palestinian (although I married into the culture). I am human. I
believe in human rights for everyone. Some people may think that this
is not "our" fight, but it is to me, because no matter their religion or cultural background, they are our brothers and sisters in humanity.  I will protest right along side everyone in Palestine. I may not be able to change the world, but I can
die trying.

                            I put a little baking soda in the palm of my hand, then add a few drops of vinegar to make a paste and put that on a sting.  That's what my mom always did.  My grandmother would use tobacco.

                            Take an aspirin and smash it up into a powder, add water and make it into a paste. Put it on the sting and it will take care of the pain and swelling.
