Bee and Hornet Sting
Don't quote me on this, I thought this was an interesting e-mail;
A couple of weeks ago I was unfortunate enough to get stung by both
a bee and a hornet while in the garden.
My arm swelled up, so off to the doctor I went. The clinic gave me
cream and an antihistamine. The next day the swelling was getting
progressively worse so off to my regular doctor I went.
Infected arm - needed an antibiotic. What was interesting is what
the Dr. told me. The next time you get stung put a penny on the bite for
15 minutes. I thought, wow next time (if there ever is one) I will try
Well that night my niece got stung by two bees. When she came
over to swim I looked at the bite and it had already started to
swell. So off I went to get my money. Taped a penny to her arm for 15
minutes. The next morning, there was no sign of a bite. Wow were we
Well guess what happened again on Saturday night. I was helping
my sister deadhead her flowers and guess what? You are right I got
stung again two times by a hornet on my left hand. Was I ticked. I thought,
here I go again having to go to the doctor for yet another antibiotic.
Well I promptly went into the house, again got my money out, and
taped two pennies to my bites and then sat and sulked for 15
minutes. The penny took the string out of the bite immediately. I still
wasn't sure what was going to happen. The next morning I could only see the spot where he had stung me. No redness, no swelling. Just wanted to share the marvelous information in case any of you are experiencing the same problem at home. We need to have a stock of pennies on hand at school and at home.
The Dr. said somehow the copper in the penny counteracts the bite. I
would never had believed it. But it definitely does work.
So remember this little bit of wisdom and pass it on to your
friends, children, grandchildren-everyone.....
Don't pray for a blessing--Pray to be a blessing.
