    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

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

    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!
