I accidently disturbed an underground bees nest this afternoon while working in the backyard with St. Barry.  Within seconds of feeling a sting I was surrounded by hundreds of bees, which chased me all the way around the house as I ran for cover yelling OUCH!

IMG_1682[1]My back swelled immediately. After 5 minutes of icing I decided to make a post on Facebook seeking treatment advice. I love the power of Facebook.  In 30 seconds remedy’s were shared, by friends…

Argentina Beer Garlic smash one and put on,rapido!!

Felicia Ciaramitaro Mohan Thank you! What does garlic do? Its stinging like crazy!

Mary Beth Stanton Make sure the stinger is out. Scrap it with a credit card or drivers license. Make a paste with baking soda and water and apply to the area.

Andrea Rubino Toppan Paste with meat tenderizer and water

Ann Mulcahey Capsazun

Paula Bertolino wash it with soap and water and put an antiitch cream on. I got stung a month ago, then Andy went out and got stung too..Just like you. I ended up in the drs because the swelling was so bad and got a red line up my arm.

Takes the pain away ask Jean Marcantonio

 

Argentina Beer And swelling
Donna Ardizzoni That looks very swollen..

 

Lorinda Barry Canty I got stung a couple of weeks ago for the first time in my life…I mixed baking soda and some water made a paste, spread it on and let it dry…And then I repeated it…

Rosaria Giambanco- Floyd Holy shit it sounds like cooking recipes just make sure the string is out keep clean call me morning

Paula Bertolino I did the baking soda and water too and the dr asked me why i did that.

Katelyn Foley Vinegar!!

Julie Sanfilippo Press the side of a knife on it for a few minutes. The metal takes the pain away like magic!

Rosa Mortillaro Put a potato on it it will take the stinger out

Kristin Michel Windex – it worked for everything in My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Annmarie Manninen Wonson Actual meat tenderizer

Pam Lane believe it or not Meat tenderizer. It draws out the stinger….also a paste of baking soda works too.

Rosemarie Calomo Vizena Hope you are doing better.

Alison Lote Monell Windex!
Didn’t you see “my big fat Greek wedding “. ?
Hope it’s better

Felicia Ciaramitaro Mohan just did the baking soda … feels a little better after several applications!  I have a high tolerance for pain…Wow can’t believe how much my back hurts…

Late summer through early fall bees seem to take over, parks playgrounds, and ball fields.  I vividly remember swatting bees at my son BJ’s pee wee football games and running for cover on many occasions.  After today experience I thought I ask ” what’s your favorite bee sting remedy?”

Yesterday afternoon Daughter Amanda and I shared a beautiful mommy daughter afternoon in Rockport together, playing tourist, after dropping a special Surprise Birthday Gift off at “My Place Restaurant” at the end of Bearskin Neck for my BFF Dee Noble. Bearskin Neck is really a great place to visit if your in the Cape Ann area. They have it all, a wide variety of shops, food, and art galleries, with the bonus of breath taking scenic views in its mist. Amanda and I shopped our way down the neck, in and out of several gift, jewelry and clothing stores, explored a few art galleries and enjoyed a slice of Apple Strudel at the Famous “Helmut”s Strudel” Of Bearskin Neck.  The Last Resort Located diagonally across from Helmut’s Strudel really struck a cord in me, returning me back to the days of shopping with my Mom for specialty Baby clothing for BJ & Amanda when they were babies.  My heart was fluttering as I took a few photos of their gorgeous lien and cotton infant and toddler clothing yesterday. If your a Grandmother or parent in the Cape Ann area this holiday weekend, who is looking for beautiful boutique style children clothing, run don’t walk to “The Last Resort”  on Bearskin Neck…and tell them Sista Felicia sent you!
