There are many proprietary remedies for wasp stings, which are available from chemists and supermarkets.

Ancient remedies are those such as a plaster made from wild mallow leaves, bay oil, vinegar and salt mixed with honey, and goose dung!

What you should always do:

  • Wash with soap and water
  • Apply anti histamine spray or cream, or take anti histamine tablets unless you are allergic to these treatments, always check with your pharmacist.
  • Apply an ice-pack to reduce swelling – always place a tea towel or similar between the ice pack and the skin
  • Seek medical attention if you are susceptible to insect bites generally
  • Seek medical attention immediately if you suffer vomiting, diarrhoea, hypotension, fever, convulsions, or momentary loss of consciousness
  • Seek medical attention immediately if you suffer rashes, itching, nausea, cramps, severe dizziness or headaches, or are allergic to wasp stings
