Wasp Sting: 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. For swelling > 4 inches, nausea or vomiting - seek medical attention.

Wasp: For the condition to have worsened to the degree that you are not able to walk is a sign that you should see a health care provider as you may need stronger medications to help with your reaction.
