Mix a dilution of 5 percent tea tree oil with aloe vera gel. This mixture will soothe bug bites and rashes, and will also help prevent infection.

• Dampen a Tums or Rolaids tablet and rub it on an insect bite or sting.

• Rub a paste made from commercial meat tenderizer and a little bit of water on a bite. This neutralizes the poison in just a few minutes.

• Apply fresh crushed parsley directly to an insect bit to neutralize the poison and stop the pain.

• Apply a paste of table salt mixed with water to the bite.

• A fresh cut onion quickly applied to a sting will prevent swelling and redness, and will stop the pain.

I'm guessing this means you want posts about what to do?

For bee stings the homeopathic remedy Ledum is great. There is also an Apis cream that helps.

Lavender EO is great for bug bites of any kind. It really helps with the itching and reduces inflammation.
Anna,
Where do you get the apis cream? I have looked for it, but can't find it.

SssstingStop works well to for topical relief of itch, pain and redness. Although, if you are on a constitutional remedy you can not use it because it contains eucalyptus.

Thanks.
Joette
I ordered mine from Washington Homeopathics. Clara's used to carry it but they recently went out of business.

"Interesting. I do find info about Arnica as a poison ivy relief alternative. I hadn't heard of that. Homeopathic Apis helps for swelling, hives also. Pat"

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
