You'll never try anything else for stings
Submitted by J. Bragg
Immediately after the sting, place a clean penny over the sting. Supposedly, there is a chemical reaction with the copper in the penny which causes the pain to stop and the poison to be drawn out. I have 5 active sons and have used this method probably 100 times in 20+ years. Thats
it! Thats all there is to it! try it on a child and the crying will stop quickly.
