Please can any of our widely experienced members advise me on the matter of wasp stings?

We have just come back from the  "weekly shop" in Pocklington. We had got to only yards from home when I was attacked by a wasp that must have "come aboard" in the drive back home.  It dug its spike into  the finger next to the  "left little one". .As a reward I flattened it.  I now have a fairly painful  finger on my left hand.  The pain seems to be very slowly rising up the finger and diminishing.

Only thing I can recommend is to make sure you have got the sting out, if it was left in there due to the wasp having been flattened. If you have an after bite pen, rub some of that on the inflamed area, it will sting for a few seconds after application due to it containing Ammonia. Apart from that, Keep an eye on the wound and if there is any sign of Sepsis go and see the Doctor for Antibiotics.

The other option is to strike the affected area repeatedly as hard as feasibly possible with the family bible. Does nothing to reduce the pain, but you seen forget the sting.

Thank you both. The discomfort is now virtually gone.

Management says she thinks it is all due to being thick skinned.

On a visit to Turkey, Er indoors was stung. The waiter in the restaurant immediately applied a slice of tomato. It was very effective.

You should have used any piece of iron near you...and rubbed it continuously for 5 to 10 min....it is really effective.
