Txs: Remove stinger by scraping along edge of skin with a credit card. Clean with soap & warm water. Apply a paste of 2 parts baking soda & 1 part water. Or: apply enzyme based meat tenderizer poultice & wrap area. Or: mix water & activated charcoal - apply paste. Or: mix clay-like soil with water - apply. For throat, airway or tongue swelling – call 911 even if an epi-pen was used.
