Last weekend, my 36-year old sister got stung by a bee. It was in my house, of all places, where a bee had landed on the back of a chair as we were going in and out to a block party all afternoon.
My sister has been stung twice before, and each time had a reaction of increasing severity so she was terrified to have been stung. The danger with bee stings, of course, are that they can trigger anaphalactic shock quickly, and each incident can be worse than the previous.
After removing the bee from the house, I moved quickly and gave her 3 pellets of homeopathic Apis underneath her tongue. We coated the sting area with calamine lotion, though mud works just as well, if not better, and let it dry to leach the toxin out. About 15 minutes later I gave her 3 pellets of homeopathic Ledum as a follow up. (I also keep Benedryl and an EpiPen in the house, just in case, but they weren’t needed.)
The result of our homeopathic first aid? No breathing difficulties, no swelling in the throat, not even any swelling at the sting site. She was amazed.
I was up on my bee sting procedure as the week before my 3-year old daughter had been stung while on the slide in a playground. We were lucky because it had rained the night before and we found some great mud in the baseball diamond in the park. We packed it onto the sting sites and it gave her some immediate relief. We were not home until an hour later, at which point I gave her an Apis pellet shortly followed by a Ledum. She was able to sleep comfortably that night, and by the next day had no swelling at all.
I find this Basic 36 Homeopathy Kit at HomeopathyWorld.com handy to have around for times like these.

At what point do you remove the stinger? I’ve only ever been stung once — when I was ten, and it was on my lip, of all places. I do not remember if the stinger fell out or if my Mom had to scrape it off.
