Bee and wasp stings are very common if you are outside for a longer time in summers. Also, activities like hiking and walking in the woods may cause bees and wasps to hover and bite you. Bee stings and wasp stings must be treated as soon as possible. But treating them depends upon how serious the sting is. Stings cause allergies, severe pain and sometimes fever that is why it is important to get them treated with the help of a medical practitioner. Even before that, you must react quickly and provide first aid to the sting to avoid further complications. In this blog, we explain to you in detail what you must do if someone is stung by a wasp or a bee. Most importantly, you must remember that immediate help should be provided to the person stung by a bee or wasp. If he or she is allergic to the sting, then they should be taken to a hospital at the earliest. 

Here are a few home remedies, tips and tricks that you must follow when you’re stung by a bee or wasp. These tips will help you deal with all kinds of bee and wasp stings.

Some Instant Remedies You Can Try For Wasp Stings Are: 

-Wash the sting immediately with a mixture of water and soap. This will help to remove as much venom from the sting as possible. 

-To reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain, apply ice or a cold pack. This will reduce the swelling immediately. 

– Cover the affected area with a bandage and if possible let it clean the wound and keep it dry to avoid infections. 

Bee Stings:

-Remove the stinger immediately by scraping it with a hard object. 

-Apply ice or a cold pack to the affected area for 15-20 minutes every hour as per the necessity. 

-Apply cream to relieve pain and inflammation. 

-Make sure to get a tetanus shot within a few days of the bee sting. 

Vinegar- It is the most common remedy used to treat wasp stings. Its acidity helps to neutralize the wasp sting. Take some cotton and pour a small amount of vinegar on it. Use this to apply on the sting, you can also leave it for a few minutes. This will help to reduce the pain and inflammation caused by the sting. 

Baking Soda- It is also one of the best home remedies to cure bee or wasp stings. It soothes your skin and prevents the irritation caused by insect stings. Use some baking soda while bathing, adding baking soda in the water while you bathe helps to prevent infection. 

Wasp and bee stings can have similar symptoms but there are different methods to treat them. The only difference between a bee and wasp sting is that a bee leaves its stinger onto your skin while a wasp can sting you more than once as its stinger remains unbroken and intact.
