I got my first bee sting a day and a half ago. I stepped on the poor and she got me in the arch of my foot. Dropped to the ground and got the stinger out with my knife before anyone else even knew what had happened. Irony is that I was going to get my shoes on. So here it is about 40 hours later and I'm wondering if there's anything that can be done to speed the healing? It itches and burns and throbs a bit like a ginormous mosquito bite. No sign of infection and it looks like I got all of the stinger out on the first try. Obviously I'm not allergic which is good to know. It could have been worse but the after effect is frankly making it hard to walk and it doesn't seem to have changed much since the first hour or two. I read somewhere that vinegar can help but will it do any good at this late stage? Got any other home remedies? Ice / cold helps but of course that's only temporary.
