Insect Bites or Stings
If the person bitten/stung has abnormal swelling, or shows signs of a serious allergic reaction, call 9-1-1!! Some people can die from bites/stings if they are not treated immediately.
lBaking soda. Mix baking soda with water to form a paste. Apply the paste and cover with a gauze bandage or paper towel and tape. Leave on for one half hour or more until pain is gone.
lRelieve the itch from bug bites with an onion. The sulfur in onions neutralizes the chemicals that cause the itch. Simply slice a yellow onion in half and rub one of the cut sides on the bite. The itching should stop immediately. Refrigerate the onion in a sealed container to use again if the itching resumes. Make a fresh slice before reapplying it.
lVinegar. Good for spider bites too. Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and place it over the spider / bug bite. When we got bites on our hand or foot, we would put the soaked cotton ball in a bag and put our infected hand / foot in the bag over night. You would have to make sure that the bag was not tight around the wrist / ankle. You might also hold the soaked cotton ball in place by a band aid. By morning, the swelling and / or soreness should be gone as if you hadn't been bitten.
lOther insect bite/sting remedies include mustard, ammonia, tomato slices, potato slices, and fresh garlic pieces or minced.
Insect Repellent Recipe
Herbalist Debra Nuzzi-St. Claire suggests combining
the following essential oils to make a natural insect
Brown recluse bites.
lCan be very dangerous. If you get a bite that swells like a boil, with a red center that quickly hardens over, DO NOT try to squeeze or press on the swollen area or pick at it - you will only end up spreading the poison. For such bites, mix ground bromelain (or pineapple pulp), fresh garlic juice, tea tree oil and MSM together into a paste and apply to bite area and surrounding area liberally. Cover with a bandage and keep covered all day, changing as often as needed to keep the medicine on the area. Also take 250 mg bromelain capsules two to three times per day, drink plenty of water, and eat plenty of raw garlic. A good homeopsthic/herbal medicine to use is ledum pallustre. Continue all treatments until redness and swelling are gone. If swelling and redness continue to grow, seek medical attention. This regimen was used successfully by the author with superior results to the medical treatment I received with a previous brown recluse bite.
l Pascalite bentonite clay, used both externally and internally, has been used successfully against brown recluse and other nasty spider bites.
l DMSO and gentain violet used externally has also been reported to be successful.
