5 Simple Bee Sting Home Remedies

Itching, swelling, and redness can result from bee stings. Five simple home cures for bee stung pain and healing:

1. Ice Pack

Apply a cloth-wrapped cold compress or ice pack on the sting for 10-15 minutes to minimise discomfort and swelling.

2. Baking Soda Paste

Make a paste with baking soda and a little water. Leave the paste on the bee stung for 15-20 minutes to neutralise venom and ease itching.

3. Honey

Apply a little honey on the bee sting. Honey is antimicrobial and soothing.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

To alleviate inflammation and agony, apply a cotton ball or towel soaked in diluted apple cider vinegar (equal parts vinegar and water) to the sting.

5. Aloe Vera Gel

Apply fresh or commercial aloe vera gel on the bee sting. The cooling and anti-inflammatory effects of aloe vera minimise swelling and pain.
