Bee stings

  1. What's an easy way to relieve the pain of a bee sting?

    For people not allergic to bee stings, a quarter of a teaspoon of meat tenderizer (containing the active ingredient papain) disolved in a couple of teaspoons of water (enough to make a paste) should be applied to the sting.
