YIKES! How awful! Thank goodness she wasn't allergic! And thank goodness for Benadryl! My traditional method of soothing a sting would not have helped for your poor angel. We use the root end of an onion on a sting, that milky liquid takes the pain away immediately. Think it might have been a touch owie on an eye though!

Thanks y'all!

Alix, we normally use a paste of either meat tenderizer or baking soda & water on bee stings. I'll have to try the onion thing, but hopefully no one will get stung again for a very long time!

I'm glad she is ok. My son was stung by a bee or wasp and we had to take him to the ER. He was stung on the lip, but his entire face got distorted. We had no idea he was allergic. It is amazing what their venom can do in a sec.

I hope she's doing better now and I am so glad that it wasn't an allergic reaction and got worse.

Sorry about the yellow jacket sting! Ouch! So glad to hear she is doing better. In the eye though, wholly cow! I've had them in the hand and foot but never the eye. Not that I ever did this as a parent, but it's a good idea to keep an epi pen around, because if you suddenly find your child allergic to bee stings it can be a life saver, especially if your not sure if they are allergic to bee's.
