what do i do for a red wasp sting?

Maybe nothing

Stringio
Unless you are allergic to it, often a sting from a wasp will only cause some imediate local pain. Infection arising from a simple sting is quite rare. So, if it is not hurting/swelling, do nothing. If some redness, try some calamide/caladryl lotion. If really swollen, red, painful after 2-3 days, consult doc. Good luck

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Had a wasp sting, is there any bacteria in the sting?

Possibly

Stings
Any time there is a break in the integument (skin and mucous membranes) bacteria may be introduced into the break, but wasp stings seldom result in secondary bacterial infection if the stinger is removed. They can, but seldom do.

Dr. Lee M. Perry answered:

what to do about wasp sting?

Many treatments

Stings
The most thing is to identify whether or not you might have life threatening allergy to insect stings--this type of allergy would be characterized by symptoms that occur away from the sight of the sting. Examples would include head-to-toe hives, shortness of breath, or throat discomfort. If the symptoms are local only, treat with ice and oral Benadryl.

what to do for wasp sting and swelling?

Depends

Most people who are stung by bees just get a red, swollen itchy "bump" in the area...wshing it right away..using ice...applying cortisone cream and taking an antihistamine usually provides relief. If you have bee sting allergy you can have more serious symptoms(hives all over, asthma, trouble breathing etc..) If you have these see an allergist ASAP.

Please tell me how to treat a wasp sting?

Use EpiPEN, go to ER

Open-uri20120930-18476-1yd58ae
You may have no problem with this, but if you have an allergy or you think you do, my advice is to get to an ER ASAP. They will give you epinephrine so you don't go into anaphylactic shock, which can close your airway and kill you. After this episode is over, you might want to see your doctor and get an EpiPEN, which is a shot of epinephrine you can give yourself quick if this happens again.
