How To Treat A Wasp Sting

Summer in the UK usually only lasts 5 minutes, so as soon as we see that first ray of sunshine, we all head out for a day in the sun. With our pale legs out, we soak up the sun in our gardens and parks until the rain comes. However, when basking in the summer sun with our legs out on the show, we sometimes get unwanted guests with a sting in their tails.

Fortunately, for those who do not suffer from an allergic reaction to insect stings, some remedies for wasp stings help ease the pain. They will also help with the irritating itch.

If, however, you are allergic to stings, then the best course of action is to contact a hospital straight away.

Common symptoms of a wasp sting include:

Shortness of Breath

Burning Sensation

Nausea

Swelling of Throat

Home Remedies for Wasp Sting

 

Vinegar

To use vinegar on wasp stings, soak a cotton ball with apple cider or white vinegar and place it on the affected skin area. Leaving the cotton ball on your skin for a few minutes will allow the vinegar to ease the pain.

Lemon

Take a whole lemon, slice the lemon in half and apply flesh side down onto the sting. This will help due to the citric acid neutralising the alkali in the venom.

Lemon Juice

Going deep into the kitchen cupboards, can you find some lemon juice left over from pancake day? Take a cotton ball or swab and soak it in the lemon juice.
