Subject: Bee Sting Treatment


I received this treatment from a friend, and if it works for you, it's great! Good Luck. Diane

Bee/Hornet Cure

A couple of weeks ago I was unfortunate enough to get stung by both a bee and hornet while working in the garden.

My arm swelled up so off to the doctor I went. The clinic gave me

cream and an antihistamine. The next day the swelling was getting progressively worse so off to my regular doctor I went. Infected arm - needed an antibiotic. What was interesting is what the Dr. told me. The next time you get stung put a penny on the bite for 15 minutes. I thought, wow next time (if there ever is one) I will try it.

Well that night Shelley's niece got stung by two bees. When she came over to swim I looked at the bite and it had already started to swell. So off I went to get my money. Taped a penny to her arm for 15 minutes. The next morning, there was no sign of a bite. Wow were we surprised. Her niece > >we decided, just wasn't allergic to the sting.

Well guess what happened again on Saturday night. I was helping > Shelley deadhead her flowers and guess what? You are right. I got stung again two times by a hornet on my left hand. Was I ticked. I thought, here I go again having to go to > the doctor for yet another antibiotic.

Well I promptly went into the house, again got my money out, and taped two pennies to my bites and then sat and sulked for 15 minutes. The > penny took the sting out of the bite immediately. I still wasn't sure what was going to happen. In the meantime the hornets were attacking Shelley > and she got stung on the thumb. Again the penny. The next morning I could only see the spot where he had stung me. No redness, no swelling. Went over the see Shelley and hers was the same. Couldn't even tell where she got stung. Then Shelley got stung again on Monday night on her back---cutting the grass.

This penny thing is going to make us money at school. Again it worked.

Just wanted to share the marvelous information in case any of you are experiencing the same problem at home. We need to have a stock of > pennies on hand at school and at home.

The Dr. said somehow the copper in the penny counteracts the bite. I would never had believed it. But it definitely does work.

So remember this little bit of wisdom and pass it on to your friends, children, grandchildren, etc.

Re: Bee Sting Treatment


Interesting! Also a really safe and v.effective treatment is the homeopathic remedy apis for any bite/sting that swells, is red, hot and v.painful to touch with stinging sensation. You buy the tablets in a health shop and give one to suck/chew every 15mins till resolved. I use it all the time in our family but also a friend who's daughter got a bad sting by some coral rang me - the whole leg was swelling/red/hot etc and she rang me on the way to hosp. She had her homeopathic kit in her bag and gave the apis all the way there - by the time they got there (about 30mins) they turned around again, the little one was fine and the swelling had reduced greatly. I had told them to give it every 10 mins as it was so acute.

The remedy apis is made from....yes...bee sting venom!

Re: Bee Sting Treatment


Now Jimmy (Justin's Uncle) is afflicted with what I am guessing is cystitis... although I have never heard him refer to it as that... but he just went last month and had one removed from the back of his neck ~ about the size of a pea... I am going to have to ask him if they call it Cystitis when he gets on of them (certain members of his family are prone to them) and if thats the case I am going to let him know about this.

We need to get a thread started symptom and homeopathic remedy. You have shared a couple great ones for things folks deal with often. Might be very helpful for someone. As different things pop up and you post something in regards to it we'll add it to the list. Nothing worse than having something the matter, and knowing there is something that could help but not knowing for sure what it could be.

I know things like that seem to happen on a weekend. And I do look online but am afraid to try what I have read. Hearing the information from someone you know allows a person to look into it themselves instead of being on a wild goose chase ~ uncertain if what you read will be safe.

Re: Bee Sting Treatment


Lost - cystitis is something different it's called 'honeymooners disease' sometimes - usually affects women and is when it is tremendously painful to pee - burning, stinging, hot, reduced urine output, urges to pee but can't etc

The production of cysts on the body is something different. I'd be very interested in hearing re. Jimmy's ailment and what it's called. Usually tho' for things like warts, cysts, tumours etc a homepathic consultation is required with a registered homeopath who will assess the whole person. The acutes like cuts, burns, stings etc can certainly be dealt with fairly easily. Also i have some great 'recipes' for helping with recovery after surgery/c-sections etc.
