Bee Sting . . . Infection

    Hi All,

    I'm really not on my computer at all these days and shouldn't be now, so I'm going to make this quick. So many of you on here are knowledgeable about so many health issues I was hoping you might have a few suggestions for me.

    My body is so weak right now that I just can't handle any stressor at all. I got a bee sting on Sunday afternoon. Everything seemed fine on Monday, but yesterday when I woke my toe that got stung was very itchy and swollen. My toes are always a little swollen and discolored, but the toe that was stung was especially bad. I tried googling some remedies and have tried tons of them - ice, honey, baking soda, comfrey cream, etc, etc.

    Nothing is helping and it got much, much worse last night. I couldn't sleep at all. This morning it is swollen to twice the normal size, I can't bend it, it's painful and itchy and hot to the touch. I'm afraid it somehow became infected. I do have an appointment with my family doctor this afternoon, but I'm concerned they'll just want to push oral antibiotics. My gut can't handle them now.

    Any other suggestions for things I could try? Thanks for any input.

    Have you taken a bunch of antihistamine? Quercitin? I have an anaphylaxic reaction to bees so I carry an epi-pen, but if you have a histamine problem I would get some anti-histamine into you quickly..it may just be your histamines acting up, not an infection.

    Maybe an antihistamine?

    An onion poultice?
    No idea where it came from but it popped into my head when reading the answer about Quercetjn. Google confirms it working for some.

    BJ! So glad to hear from you.
    Sounds like your immune system is hyperactive. Even though ice doesn't seem to help, I would keep that foot on it anyway. It might be preventing further inflammation.

    Casor oil pack or mudpacks such as Medibodypack from PRL with liver-ND and or Apple Cider Vinegar as the fluid that you mix it with. Both are good for such things. Toes are tough, poor circulation.

    lack of electrons in immune cells...........DHA deficiency.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I tried pretty much all of them! Not sure which helped (or if it was just time), but it cleared in a few days thank goodness.
