Collection: Bee Stings
The warmer months give us a chance to spend more time outside. Bike rides, trips to the local park, sitting on a patio, or working away in your backyard garden are just a few of the activities we all enjoy in the nice weather. Being bothered by bees, especially if you’re enjoying a sugary beverage or popsicle, goes with the territory. At certain points of the season, various species of bees will be more active, increasing the risk of being stung. Certain insects may also be more aggressive than others; such as carnivorous wasps. For the most part, any bee will only sting in defence of a perceived threat. Regardless of the reason, the pain of a sting remains.
The pain of a bee sting is usually immediate. Whether you’re aware of the bee’s presence or not, the sharp, intense, burning pain will have you recoiling instantly. It will appear as a red welt that begins developing moments after the sting and may continue to swell slightly around the area for a little while after. The swelling and pain of the sting usually dissipates within a few hours or so after the sting, but the area may be tender to the touch for some time after.
To get some much needed relief, there is homeopathy for bee stings. You can use Ledum-Palustre-30c - a 100%-natural remedy available from Olloïs. This treatment can minimize the pain of the sting while helping to reduce the swelling. It’s also shown to prevent infection from occurring at the site.
