Does work Comments By: Ashlynn on 2010-07-21
I was stung about 6 hrs ago and AM allergic... I swell up if I don't take benadryl right away... I took the correct dose and soon fell asleep... I woke up with pain shooting through my foot.. I went to the web searching for a remedy for the pain and found this site. I read bout the onion but didn't have one in the house so I tried vinegar... It did help with the pain. although I did have to soak a cotton ball and leave it on the sting site. I don't have the shooting pain that I did... Wow are hornet stings way worse then any bee!!! How this helps :)
