The best thing I know for bee stings is a paste made with baking soda and 
water.  Spread it on and it does work.   I know personally.

    Since this is the season for working outdoors I thought I'd pass this 
interesting tidbit along. I know this isn't specifically  blindness related but 
I know none of us has extra money to throw away if we don't absolutely have to 
and this can save you something. 


    By the way, this helps for fire ants too.




    Here is my part to help cut health care cost!!!



    This information may be something to remember, as this season will soon be 
here again... 


    It might be wise to carry a penny in your pocket while working 

    in the yard......... BEE STINGS ! 


    A couple of weeks ago, I was stung by a bee while working in the garden. 

    My arm swelled up, so I went to the doctor. The clinic gave me cream and an 
antihistamine. The next day the swelling was getting progressively worse, so I 
went to my regular doctor. The arm was Infected and needed an antibiotic.The 
doctor told me - ' The next time you get stung, put a penny on the bite for 15 


    That night, my niece was stung. I looked at the bite and it had already 
started to swell.. So, I taped a penny to her arm for 15 minutes. The next 
morning, there was no sign of a bite.  We decided that she just wasn't allergic 
to the sting. 


    Soon, I was gardening outside. I got stung again, 

    by a hornet on my left hand. I thought, here I go again to the 

    doctor for another antibiotic. 


    I promptly got my money out and taped a penny to my bite then sat

    and sulked for 15 minutes. The penny took the string out of the bite 

    No redness, no swelling.   


    Wanted to share this marvelous information in case you experience the same 
problem. We need to keep a stock of pennies on hand . 


    The doctor said that the copper in the penny counteracts the bite.  It 
definitely works! 


    Please remember and pass this information on to your friends, children, 
grandchildren, etc.
