Homeopathic Range - Bites and Stings

Bites and Stings:
Most insect bites should cause few problems if you are generally healthy. Always clean the wound and use tweezers to extract the sting. Rub Calendula cream into the wound or apply diluted tincture (one part in ten) on a cotton pad (Hypercal cream or tincture will do just as well). This acts as an antiseptic and speeds up the healing process. For larger animal bites, see Cuts and Injuries.
Consider the following remedies for more severe reactions:

Apis mellifica:

sting (where the remedy comes from). However, do not use it routinely for bee stings; only if there is swelling.
