    Son of a b@@@h that hurt!!!!

    I just got stung by a bee. It's a warm evening and I'm sitting here with the windows open. We don't have much in the way of bugs here so I don't bother with screens. I felt this little tickle behind my knee and absentmindedly swatted my hand over it. YEOUCH! Stung right on the ring finger.

    I got the stinger out and put some ice on it. Any other healing tips? Magic remedies?

    snuff/tobacco powder and spit as a paste on the sting, that's what my mom put on me when i'd get stung

    i don't remember how much it helped though

    AFAIK, being stung is an old country remedy for a number of things. Maybe you got lucky.

    Sorry to hear -- I've not been stung by anything more painful than a wasp. I was a small child at the time and polishing a brass=plated doorstep and one had got under the duster.

    I once got stung by a hornet in my index finger (my fault). Never felt such intense pain before (and after). I tried ice and Aloe Vera (fresh from the plant) and one of these electric things that heat up, but only holding the hand high and ice helped a little bit...

    I hope you could sleep and the finger is better now!

    When I picked up an ex-con in the desert years ago (long story), a bee flew into the car and stung my hand. He instantly tore open one of his cigarettes and gave me the tobacco - I spit on it, put it on the sting, secured it with a bandaid, and it worked like magic!

    Hornet stings are the worst, I just ran cold water over it and swore profusely. I'm not sure which one helped more

    Dang thing was still alive too, and as it occurred in my house I still had to find it and kill it afterwards; I thought I was gonna get stung again, it was intense lol

    I was hitching a ride in the desert years ago when the driver was stung in the hand by a bee that had flown in through an open window. I broke open a cigarette and shook him some tobacco. He used some spit to wet it and packed it on the sting. Held it with a bandaid. He said it worked like magic!
