Remove stinger ASAP: by scraping along edge of skin w credit card. Clean area w soap & warm water. Apply ice in 10 min. increments (10 on/10 off). Can try Tylenol, (acetaminophen) aspirin or Motrin for pain or Benadryl for swelling. Make paste of 2 parts baking soda & 1 part water & apply. Need tetanus shot every 10 years. Throat, airway, mouth swelling or difficulty breathing? Call 911! Seek medical care for milder allergic >
