My 18 year old daughter was stung by a wasp two days ago. The sting site (her elbow) is very red and swollen. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Scrape the area with a fingernail or use tweezers to remove it. Don't pinch the stinger -- that can inject more venom. Ice the area. If you were stung on your arm or leg, elevate it.
Remove any tight-fitting jewelry from the area of the sting. As it swells, rings or bracelets might be difficult to remove.
Use Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. Use antihistamine for itching, you can apply calamine lotion. Good Luck. ...Read more

Multiple welts on lower legs and up to elbow. Almost like mosquito bites but sting more and don't appear to be bites. Any idea of cause?
A couple of thoughts: First, skin problems can not really be managed without a visual. Consider uploading a picture to HealthTap virtual consults. Painful welts can be a condition called erythema nodosum, but it would be unusual on the forearms, & usually occurs in younger women. Urticaria can result from an allergic reaction, but is usually itchy. Would favor inflammatory over infectious cause. See doc/Dermatologist. ...Read more

Why is it for the last 3 days I have small red spots that itch and sting like ants, particularly on the hands, elbows, legs, and feet?
Many possibilities: What you describe, painful and itching red spots on your extremities, could be related to an allergic reaction, to something you have come in contact with or eaten, or could be due to a viral infection. It is hard to be more specific, but I see you are trying an antihistamine and topical steroid cream. See your doctor soon if these treatments are not working. ...Read more
