RE: Re: Bonnie's wasp bite


I saw the nurse at the doctor's office taking mother in.  Since I'm already
on an antihistamine, she said there wasn't much she could do unless it gets
progressively worse.  The red area has begun to very slowly decrease in
size.  I kept a Benedryl spray on it all of yesterday and an icepack between
phone calls at work.  I'll be doing that today, too.  I sure wish the
itching would stop.  I can't scratch it because the skin is so very tender
over the area.  Of such is life.  I've probably already turned the corner
and it will just take some time.  

Dad used to soak my feet (swollen to where the toes looked like funny little
dots on the end of my swollen foot and leg from bee sting) in Epson Salts.
I'd try that, but how do I get my shoulder into a bucket with the mix?
LOL!!!  

I ran across an end of season sale and got a flat of herbs for $ 0.40 per 4"
pot.  I'm a happy camper now! 

Blessings,
Bonnie
