It is my pleasure to bring the forums to you.

OK. so you want Vagasil without the embarrased walk to the counter?, save yourself that walk and go down the teeth-product isle instead and buy ORIJEL GEL (not liquid) and apply THAT to the area. Same 20% itch relief as mentioned above, and it is something I keep in my kit of bee tools for immediate relief of stings and post itching (which is rare - although I do swell some which I find more uncomfortable than itching honestly) but any sting in a jointed area, fingers, elbows around the eyes where blinking occurs, etc., will take longer to heal, you are rarely just letting those areas rest, they are moving and rubbing against other areas, always working the itch.

Not to forget the store brand of Orijel maximum strength is a lot cheaper than Vagasils (at least it is here) and you CAN add a squirt to honey to really spread it around, but don't go stingy with the Orijel, apply enough to do the trick, it will apply and absorb quicky when used by itself and stay topical if mixed with honey.

Way to go handymandave.... drowning

You got grown men discussing the finer points of shopping in the women's personal hygiene section of the market. Calling all metrosexual men.....come here....Dave has an itching problem. Golly gee fellas, what will Dave do! This is just absolutely upsetting.  lau

Instead of a scene from Monty Python, with lines such as "It's a mere flesh wound you coward! Come back here! I'll bite your head off!" we now have men replaying scenes of Mel Gibson (ain't he grand!) running around the bathroom doing wax treatments and wearing pantyhose as in the movie "What women want".

If I knew where you were Dave, I'd drive over there and smack you up side the head. But do yourself a favor, and help all men everywhere. Get your hammer you have in that van of yours. Put your thumb down on a table. And then smack the crap out of it. You'll see how fast you will forget about some itching.

Last time I had an itch, the doctor handed me the Q-tip and I plunged it up and procured the sample myself.  shocked

Hey Dave... Wink You have a nice day!  grin

Tandemrx, thanks very much for sharing your professional advice with us all, whilst I enjoy reading everyone else's personal experience, I believe you've given the definitive answer on the subject. Luckily I've had no need to resort to any kind of treatment for stings yet, but if I do, I feel better prepared now.

This weekend I forgot to close the discharge chute on the mower when I made a pass by the hives.  They chased me doewn for it and I almost ran into a tree trying to swat them off me.  They only got me in the head under the hair.  Now the itch is on...
