My YDS suffer from two wasp stings yesterday. We were outside, while I was tending to my vegetables garden they were playing around the house. When it was time to go in they refuses to come in. So, I left them outside playing while I prepare dinner. Next thing I heard some one was crying and three of them came walking in the house. They all told me that their youngest sibling got attack by wasp by the swing set.
He is only 3 years old. I could have imagine how bad it stings. A little bit of hugs and kisses and plain nurture made him feel better. I am so thankful that he is not allergic to them. I know for sure that 3 of my kids are not allergic to them. Now I need to know if the other two will get a reaction. However, I'm hoping not until they are a little bigger.
If your kids gets sting by wasp of hornets, try putting WD-40 on the bite. And with bee sting do not pull the stinger with tweezers, because by doing so you will squeeze more venom into their skin. Try scraping it with a knife instead, butter knife will do. Before doing the above tips, make sure they are not allergic to the sting. If they are make sure to head to the emergency room right away.
You can give them Benadryl for itching and Motrin or Tylenol for the pain. Tips brought to you by Everything Has A Reason.
