you laugh, but a lot of research on ingredients, and a lot of hanging out in the store reading labels went into that recommendation   grin

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I've been stung a lot over the last 3 years as a beginning beekeeper... fortunately, just a little swelling and itching. I have noticed hardly anything happens on the fingers, soft tissue will swell more (lips, forearm, etc). I just scrap the stinger off, rub a little pepsodent baking soda type toothpaste on it & ice it later when I get home. If I was working the back yard hives I'd mix a little baking soda in water and apply instead of using the toothpaste. I know lots of people use different things, vinegar, copper penny, etc. This is just what works for me. The ice really helps if there's much swelling.

IF you get short of breath or swelling occurs away from the sting site or your blood pressure dumps (faint) CALL 9-1-1 THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING REACTION! I carry an epi-pen for emergencies when I'm doing presentations or workshops with other people in the bee yard. (retired firefighter/EMT).

semi update;

I got stung yesterday on the left side of my upper mustache line. I went to the house and made me a paste using meat tenderizer. (suppose to neutralize the bee venom). Over 12 hours later and no itching.

Don't know if it was the bee, me, location of sting, or the meat tenderizer. I do know I'll be using it again if stung. Will keep yall updated.

Michael Palmer made a youtube video and in it he actually says that getting stung on a regular basis is good and keeps the negative reactions from happening . Definitely worth the few minutes to watch.

Benadril
a splash of apple cider vinegar on a paper towel swipe the sting
this works on skeeter bites might work on bee stings?
mothers lore says make a poultice baking soda and vinegar
nothing is immediate! except amputation and I don't recommend that, it would be like loosing ones head.
