I'm reluctant to post something which appears to be regarding ASF as a segment of the "Women's Weekly", but am desperate for some help with an itchy reaction to a beesting.
Actual sting occurred 36 hours ago. Hurt like hell for 24 hours, and since then the pain has completely gone but it is itching like I wouldn't have believed possible. It's on the last joint of the third finger in the fleshy part.
I removed the sting immediately and there's no infection. It's a bit red, slightly swollen and tight feeling, but the itch is driving me insane. It's alleviated slightly by holding the finger in crushed ice but as soon as I remove it the itch is back in full.
Any possible remedies will be received with pathetic gratitude!
