differences between bee and wasp stings?
« on: 13/08/2004 20:48:39 »
Hi everyone,
I read somewhere that bee and wasp stings were different- one being acid, the other alkali.  Does anyone know if this is true?  And if it is, would it only make sense to put vinegar on the alkaline one and use something like bicarb for the other?  What do people put on bee/ wasp stings?

thanks neilep,
i suppose that's the problem coming into the forum after all these years- i've not managed to read all of the old topics.  i hope nobody minds repeating themselves.
anyway, just like to take this opportunity to say that this is a great site!
:)
